Kabul [Afghanistan], Sept. 25 (ANI): At least six members of the Haqqani network, including two senior commanders, involved in a brutal suicide attack on the convoy of Afghan Police cadets in June have been killed during an operation in Afghanistan's central Maidan Wardak province.

The National Directorate of Security (NDS) in a statement said that the Haqqani network commanders identified as Mullah Mahmood and Azizullah were killed during a special night operation conducted by the intelligence operatives, reports the Khaama Press.

The NDS said several light and heavy weapons were also seized during the operation.

Earlier on June 30th, more than 30 police cadets lost their lives in a coordinated suicide attack in the outskirts of Kabul city.

A suicide bomber targeted the convoy of the police cadets as they were on their way from the neighbouring Wardak province and another suicide bomber rammed into the convoy minutes after the first blast as several people had gathered to help the victims of the incident. (ANI)
