The Taliban continue their attacks on Afghan security forces across the country, the Afghan Ministry of Defense said.
Sometimes, the Afghan security forces counter-attack, said the MoD.
“Within the parameters of the active defense mode, these Taliban attacks were repelled and massive casualties were inflicted on the Taliban. The group suffered massive casualties in Arghandab district of Zabul province,” said Rohullah Ahmadzai, a spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Defense.
The Taliban in recent days has not said anything officially about their attacks on the Afghan forces, and Afghan security officials have said that the government forces are still in “active defense position.”
But, the security experts say that the two sides are engaging in a ‘silent war’ against each other.
