    This is very good news to read about to say the least.

    I find the following related statistics to be interesting:

    List of Taliban fatality reports in Afghanistan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Between February-March, about 100 Taliban were killed.

    Between March-May (2 months), 717 were killed. That's about 358/359 Taliban on average each month.

    Though it went down to 295 the next month, just as many have been killed in the last 13 days on record.

    As it also states, the totals could be higher. Though I'm also interested in how many they've arrested as well.
