NIMA ROOZ: Faryab's Kohistan District Falls To The Taliban

Taliban Kidnaps at Least 60, Kills 7 in Southern Afghanistan

In the statement, the USA offered its condolences to the families of the security forces who were killed.

The Taliban launched four assaults on Ghor's Taywara police headquarters and "we had no choice but to retreat", provincial police chief Mohammad Mustafa Moseni said. He said police have taken up positions about 8 kilometres from the district headquarters while they wait for reinforcements to launch a counterattack.

Ghulam Naser Khazeh, the governor of Ghor, told Anadolu Agency that Taywara fell when hundreds of insurgents attacked the district from various directions on Saturday night, but gave no casualty figures.

As per the recent reports, at least 13 militants have been reportedly killed in an airstrike in Afghanistan on Sunday.

In the neighbouring Maywand district, Afghan Special Forces targeted a Taliban's hideout, killing six militants, including a Taliban shadow district governor named Maiwand Khan, the police spokesman added. Bigzad said another 20 members of a local police force were missing following a firefight on July 21.

The special prosecutor recalled the actor's statements and reactions before his arrest which apparently preyed on the victim. The actor, however, can challenge the court's order in the same court or higher courts including the Kerela High Court.

Bigzad says the area of the fighting is tucked inside a mountainous region where access is restricted and even telephone contact is erratic.

The five-hour battle on July 21 occurred after Taliban insurgents stormed a compound of the Afghan National Security Force in Pusht Rod district, he said.

The motive of kidnappings is unclear but Taliban insurgents have been kidnapping civilians across the country, mainly on the highways where the Taliban insurgents stop the vehicles and kidnap the civilians for ransom or to bargain for the release of detained jihadis. The Associated Press could not independently verify either death toll.

Seventy villagers afghans were kidnapped on Friday in their village, along the main motorway to the south of the country, and at least seven executed, announced the head of the provincial police in Kandahar, which has accused the taliban.

The Taliban are engaged in fighting with security forces in the northern province of Baghlan, temporarily closing a key highway between the capital Kabul and northern Afghanistan.
