Security forces in Uruzgan said on Saturday that with the help of airstrikes and reinforcements they have been able to push back the Taliban from Trin Kot city in Urozgan province.

“The operation is continuing but the enemy is weak,” said a soldier stationed in Uruzgan.

The shortage of ammunition has however been a constant concern for Afghan soldiers in fighting the Taliban.

“Our ammunition is finished. Our tanks have technical problems or have been burned in fires,” said one policeman stationed in Uruzgan.

Meanwhile Trin Kot residents are slowly returning to normal life although clashes are still ongoing on the outskirts of the city.

“We defeated the insurgents in the city. Our friends lost their lives or were wounded. Our tanks are destroyed or burned,” said one local police commander.

Uruzgan has six districts of which Khas Uruzgan, Chinartoo, Deh Rawood and Gizab are under threat and surrounded by insurgents.

“Taliban are pushed back, but they are in villages and a few districts of the province surrounded by the insurgents,” Raihana Azad, an MP from Urozgan said.

Urozgan has border with Helmand, Zabul, Kandahar and Ghazni which their security threats are high. But insecurity and Taliban’s activities in Urozgan have put Daikundi province under serous security threats.
