While briefing media on the situation in Baghlan, Ministry of Interior spokesperson Nasrat Rahimi said the enemies wanted to attack the city and show their strength to the world.
“They did not know that the brave ANDSF are stronger than before and will never allow the enemy to carry major attacks,” he expressed.
Taliban attacked Pule Khumri city from four areas, Rahimi said adding that in three areas they were defeated.
The Taliban entered local houses and from there, opened fire at Afghan national and defense security forces, he said.
Currently, the fighting is ongoing in Karkar area, far from Pul-e-Khumri city and ANDSF will eliminate the enemy soon, he said.
Rahimi added that, Kunduz’s security situation is quite normal. People can carry on their daily lives safely.
