Afghan security forces in an overnight counter-offensive recaptured 2 districts in the northern Takhar province on Monday, as reported by an army spokesman.

He said, “The security forces launched the counter-offensive in Khawja Ghar and Bangi districts and have regained control of them, forcing the insurgents to flee,”
