Four senior Taliban commanders were killed when their riding vehicle was hit in an airstrike carried out by foreign forces, serving NATO’s Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan, in Khak-e-Safid district of the western Farah province, according to spokesperson of the province police chief, Muhibullah Muhib.

He said that the airstrike was carried out around 4:30 PM on Monday, October 07, naming the dead militants as Mawlawi Kamran, Mawlawi Samad, Mawalawi Dawood, and Mawlawi Akhundzada.
