Afghan local officials have confirmed that the Taliban group stormed the center of Zareh district of Balkh province after the plan of “Reeducation in Violence” started at 00:00am (local time) on Saturday.

The spokesman of Balkh governor, Munir Ahmad Farhad told Reporterly, “The Taliban insurgents attacked the center of Zareh district from different fronts after 00:00am.”

According to Farhad, the Taliban’s attack has been thwarted by Afghan security forces and the situation becomes normal.
