No Progress After 12-Days Of Fighting In Baghlan: Residents


Although the Afghan security forces have entered their twelfth day of fighting insurgents in Baghlan province – in operation Khurshid – there are no signs of progress, say residents.

They say fighting in Baghlan is beyond Afghan security forces’ capabilities and they have appealed to NATO’s U.S-led Resolute Support troops to assist Afghan forces in the conflict.

Meanwhile, a number of Afghanistan Local Police (ALP) officers said militants over the past two days have carried out attacks on ALP checkpoints in Baghlan-e-Markazi district of the province.

“The Taliban has started attacks on checkpoints and have captured three to four checkpoints and a number of people have been killed and injured,” said Ajmal, a local policeman.

A number of ALP commanders in the province said that the Taliban has captured several of their checkpoints, however, security officials in the province declined to comment.
