At least four Taliban militants were killed and two others were wounded in a premature explosion triggered by an Improvised Explosive Device in northern Faryab province of Afghanistan.
The 209th Shaheen Corps of the Afghan Military in the North in a statement said the incident has taken place in the vicinity of Sherin Tagab highway.
The statement further added that the militants were busy planting an Improvised Explosive Device when the incident took place.
The Taliban militants and other militants including ISIS often use improvised explosive device as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces and government officials.
However, in majority of such attacks the ordinary civilians are killed while in some cases the Taliban militants are themselves blown up in premature explosions.
