Two Afghan Resistance Front commanders were killed in clashes with Taliban fighters (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) in Andarab district in Baghlan province in the north of the country.
As a result of clashes seven Taliban were eliminated.
Earlier it was reported that there was an explosion in the Afghan city of Asadabad, the center of Kunar province. An improvised explosive device detonated. According to preliminary data, the organizers staged an attack with the purpose of attacking militants of the radical Taliban movement. The IED detonated on the bridge as a Taliban vehicle was passing over it.
Militants stepped up their attack on the Afghan government in early August and entered Kabul in the middle of the month before declaring that the war was over the next day. On the night of August 31, U.S. military personnel left the airport in the Afghan capital, ending nearly 20 years of U.S. military presence in the country. In early September, the provisional government of Afghanistan, headed by Mohammad Hassan Akhund, was announced.
