Taliban Kill 20 Afghan Soldiers in Farah Province

Alwaght- At least 50 Afghan security forces were killed after Taliban attacked checkposts in the southeastern city of Farah late on Sunday.  

Shah Mahmood Rahimi, deputy head of the Farah Provincial Council said Taliban militants attacked Farah city as well as checkpoints in the nearby districts of Khaki Safed and Bala Buluk, Killing 45 Afghan local police, along with five soldiers, Reuters reported.

At the same time, about 25 Afghan commandos were killed in the central province of Ghazni, where the Taliban have attacked Shiite Hazara community in the districts of Malistan and Jaghori.

“Fresh troops have been sent to Malistan and Jaghori but the people are also cooperating and have stood up against the insurgents,” Army General Chief of Staff, Mohammad Sharif Yaftali, told reporters.

Some commandos had been killed or wounded, he added, but gave no details.

The government no longer releases exact casualty figures but officials say at least 500 men are being killed each month and hundreds more wounded, a tally many consider an underestimate.

Ghazni, briefly overrun by the Taliban in August, sits on the highway linking Kabul, the capital, to the major southern city of Kandahar. It is also a gateway into the mountainous central provinces of Hazarajat, home mainly to Hazara people.
