The clash erupted after the Taliban insurgents attacked security checkpoints and the security forces retaliated, killing 16 armed militants and injuring 11 others, the statement added.

A number of arms and ammunition, including 17 anti-personnel and anti-vehicle mines, had also been discovered and destroyed, the statement further said, without hinting at the possible casualties of security forces.
