Zabihullah Mujahid, the IEA spokesman, tweeted the raids were conducted by Special Forces in the fifth, sixth and eighth police districts of the city last night.
Mujahid wrote: “The operations targeting three hideouts, numerous insurgents were killed and weapons and ammunition seized. A security force member was also wounded.”
