Over 40 ANDSF members were killed and dozens more wounded as a result of recent attacks by the Taliban in Zabul, Kapisa and Baghlan provinces in the past two days, according to local officials.  

According to Kapisa police headquarters, four members of the local police and public uprising forces were killed in a Taliban attack in Nijrab district on Friday evening.

But MPs from Kapisa have said that ten local police personnel were killed in the attack.

Kapisa lawmakers also said that Ilyas, a former mujahideen leader, was killed in the attack by the Taliban in Nejrab. But the government has rejected these figures.

“Neither the crisis response unit nor anyone else came to our aid,” said Sayed Mohammad, a member of the local police in Kapisa.

“Our youth are being killed, but no organ is there to rescue them to treat their wounds,” said Mohammad Qaseem, a relative of one of the victims in Kapisa.
