MAIMANA (Pajhwok): Five security personnel have been killed and seven others wounded during a clash with Talibaninfo-icon insurgents in the Qaisar district of northern Faryab province, an official said on Friday.

Rahmatullah Qaisari, the Qaisar district chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the Taliban waged attacks on security posts in Bora and Badar Shah areas of the district last night.

“When reinforcement forces were arriving to support the under attack forces, they were ambushed by Taliban militants and as a result five security men were killed  and seven others wounded,” he said.

One of the injured policemen, who refused to be named, said a group of Taliban gunmen entered the Qaisar district bazaar on Thursday evening and stormed the police headquarters. He said the clash continued until 11pm.

“When a number of security forces were arriving with three tanks to repulse the attack, they were ambushed,” he said, adding five assailants were also killed and a sixth injured.

The Taliban have so far said nothing in this regard.
