12 Afghan Soldiers Killed in Taliban Attack on Army Checkpoint

KABUL – At least 12 Afghan soldiers died in an attack by Taliban militants on an army checkpoint in the southwestern province of Nimroz on Monday, a government official told EFE.

A group of insurgents launched a coordinated attack against an army checkpoint in the district of Khash Rod, after which a large quantity of arms was seized by the attackers, said a provincial official who pleaded anonymity for security reasons.

“The Taliban insurgents carried out a complex attack on an Afghan National Army security post, in which 12 ANA soldiers embraced martyrdom,” said the official, without offering details about the casualties suffered by the Taliban.

The Taliban have not yet made a statement.

Since the end of NATO’s combat mission in January 2015, Kabul has been losing ground to insurgents and now controls only 57% of the country, according to the Special General Inspector for Reconstruction of Afghanistan (SIGAR) of the United States Congress.
