The explosion took place in Pewa Pasaw locality of Bala Buluk district, northeast of provincial capital Farah city before the militants tried to attack government security forces’ positions, Nasir Mehri, reports said.
As per reports as soon as the militants were getting ready for the assault, the suicide jacket of a would-be suicide bomber detonated prematurely, setting off a handful of explosive, killing 30 militants on the spot, and leaving a few militants wounded.
Taliban militants have been on the rampage since April when they launched an annual rebel offensive in different places in Afghanistan, including the capital of Kabul, killing and injuring hundreds.
