1,500 Taliban Killed

daddullah-damned-2.jpgIt appears that the fabled offensive of the Taliban is once more finding the going extremely tough as the Afghan government reports the following stats since March:

  • 1,554 Taleban and Al Qaeda killed
  • 530 Terrorists captured
  • 23 Would-be Suicide bombers captured
  • 700 Taleban wounded

Comparing this to last year it appears that the Jihad is dying out, pun intended.

From Khaleej Times:

KABUL – Security forces killed over 1,500 insurgents across Afghanistan since March and hundreds more were captured including two-dozen would-be suicide bombers, the government said on Saturday.
The interior ministry said in a statement the figures were a ”good achievement”.
It said Afghan soldiers and their foreign counterparts had killed 1,554 insurgents in about 80 anti-Taleban operations across Afghanistan since March. About 530 militants, including 23 would-be suicide bombers, were captured, it said. Among them were 34 foreign nationals believed to be from Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda terror network, which supports the insurgency.
