TALOQAN (Pajhwok): At least 14 Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers have been killed as a result of Talibaninfo-icon attack in the Khwaja Ghar district of northern Takhar province, an official said on Thursday.

Police chief Brig. Gen. Abdul Rashid Basheer told Pajhwok Afghan News that the Taliban red unit stormed an ANA’s camp in the Chahartrash area of the district late on Wednesday.

At least 14 soldiers were killed and seven others wounded, he said, adding the rebels were forced to retreat the area after the arrival of reinforcement.

Basheer added about 55 soldiers had been stationed in the camp and the casualties would have been higher if the additional forces were not reached on time.

He said nearly 20 rebels also suffered casualties during the clash. Taliban have not yet commented in this regard.
