According to the local government officials, the control of the district fell into the hands of the Afghan forces earlier today following the counter-terrorism operations.
The Taliban insurgents had seized the control of the district four days ago after several days of heavy gun battle.

A spokesman for the Special Operations Forces command Abdul Qayoum Nuristani said the Taliban insurgents have suffered casualties as a result of the operations.
