KABUL (Pajhwok): Nine armed 'rebels' and one security personnel were killed during an operation in the capital of central Daikundi province, the Ministry of Interior said on Saturday.

Two security men and four armed rebels were injured in the operation in Sewak Shibar area of Neili, the provincial capital, yesterday, the MoI said in a statement.

The ministry said reports were received about the presence of armed men in a house in Sewak Shibar area and elders were twice sent to ask the gunmen to lay down their weapons and not to revolt.

Despite repeated attempts, the MoI statement, said the gunmen refused to drop their weapons and later security forces entered the house.

The security forces were attacked by the gunmen and as a result one security man was martyred and two others injured.

Nine gunmen were killed and four others were wounded after the security forces retaliated, the Ministry of Interior said, rejecting reports about the killing of any children during the clash.

UNICEF in a tweet on Friday said it was deeply shocked and saddened by the terrible attack on Thursday, in Sewak Shibar village that left four boys – aged between one and 14 years – dead.

“We offer our heartfelt condolences to their families as they grieve the tragic losses,” UNICEF wrote without giving details.
