ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Security forces launched search operation aimed at dispatching reinforcement to different security check posts by road in Sarkano district of eastern Kunar province, security officials said Friday.

Brig. Gen. Abdul Habib Said Khail, provincial police chief, told Pajhwok News the operation was initiated in morning in which four militants were killed and three others wounded.

He said that Afghan National Army (ANA), Afghan National Police (NP) and personnel of National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) took part in the offensive and Naway district had been cleared of insurgents.

Sarkano  district is 10 kilometres away from Asadabad, the provincial capital. The district is adjacent to Bajaur and Mohmand tribal areas, the two border areas of Pakistaninfo-icon.

Sayedkhel said all security forces’ check posts in Kunar were being dispatched reinforcement through helicopters because movement on roads was insecure.

Once the security situations were returned to normalcy, he said more check posts would be established to ensure law and order of the entire area.

Currently, he said security forces had two check posts in Nawapass area.
