Taliban kill 27 police in security post attacks in Kandahar province


Mehri is blaming the Taliban, who have stepped up their attacks against Afghan security forces across the country and have been more active in Farah province also.

Local media reported Tuesday citing provincial officials that at least nine Afghan security forces officers had been killed when repelling attacks by the Taliban terrorist group in the Afghanistan's western Farah province, while the Afghan forces managed to kill 16 terrorists.

Helal said that some gunbattles between the attackers and security forces continued until the morning.

The broadcaster added that 15 police officers have been injured, while the security forces killed 45 militants and injured 25 more.

Another police official, Zia Durrani, said none of the checkpoints was captured in the attacks. "The Taliban were defeated". He said five unit commanders were also killed.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi said the group claimed responsibility for the assaults, which come as the Western-backed government in Kabul is struggling to beat back insurgents in the wake of the exit of most North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in 2014.
