Afghan security forces recapture 2 districts

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,”

Without providing further details, the official said the Afghan government forces are in control of both the restive districts.

The Taliban militants have overrun a number of districts in Takhar and have been mounting pressure on the provincial capital Taluqan city.

Afghanistan is seeing an increase in security incidents as the Taliban outfit has increased their activities since the start of the US-led forces pull out on 1st of May.

The Taliban has claimed to capture more than 40 districts over the past 1 month.

As per Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, 5 districts have been overrun by the Taliban just over the past week.

Security officials, without confirming the fall of districts, said: “the government forces have made tactical retreat” and would soon launch counter-attacks to regain the districts from the Taliban.
