"Up to 22 Taliban rebels have been killed and seven injured over the past 24 hours," Salim said.

The Taliban outfit has not yet commented.

Dand-e-Ghori and Dand-e-Shahabudin districts have been regarded as Taliban hotbeds in Baghlan and adjoining Kunduz and Samangan provinces from where the militants organise operations.

The Afghan government launched a major offensive in mid-January to evict militants and restore government control in both Dand-e-Ghori and Dand-e-Shahabudin districts.
