Afghan National Army (ANA) commandos have rescued 23 security personnel and a civilian from a Taliban-run prison in northern Kunduz province, the Pajhwok Afghan News reported on Thursday.
The rescue operation by ANA according to the Xinhua News Agency was carried on Wednesday night.
“The special operation was inaugurated in Kabuli Qishlaq village of Haqtash district Wednesday night.
“No armed clash took place following the raid as the militants manning the Taliban hideout fled before troops’ arrival,” Mohammad Omar Haqtash, a local official said.
The freed people received medical treatment after they were transported to an army camp.
The Taliban is yet to comment on the ANA rescue operations. (ANI/NAN)
