Dozens of Afghan security forces killed in raids
    2017-November-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

DOZENS of Afghan police and soldiers have been killed in a wave of Taliban attacks on checkpoints in Afghanistan, officials said yesterday, as insurgents step up assaults on the beleaguered security forces.

The raids in the southern province of Kandahar and the western province of Farah on Monday night came hours after a suicide attacker rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into a U.S. military convoy, wounding four soldiers.

The Taliban issued statements on their social media accounts claiming the attacks.

“I can confirm that last night the Taliban launched a wave of attacks on police checkpoints in Maiwand and Zhari districts and we lost 22 brave policemen,” Kandahar governor spokesman Qudrat Khushbakht said.

He added that 45 militants were killed during the fighting that lasted around six hours.

In one of the attacks militants used an explosives-packed police pickup to ambush a checkpoint, Kandahar police spokesman Matiullah Helal said.

At least 15 policemen were wounded in the coordinated assaults.

The attack on the U.S. military convoy in Kandahar added to the casualty toll.(SD-Agencies)
