    “After several hours of resistance, the security forces were forced to retreat from the center of Jagatu County, leaving the Taliban with administrative buildings, killing up to ten soldiers of government units.”
    Judging by the losses, the county center defended a government platoon, no more. Or there were more defenders, but the local "police" suddenly disappeared somewhere and had to drape.
    Currently, government forces are focused on the outskirts of the city and are preparing a counterattack.
    "Police" in the bushes will collect and break. wink

    Well, where are the "muscles"? Clashes of local importance. Most likely, a local sharing of control over a strategic Afghan product - poppy plantations and traffic routes

      Well, the local war - it is like that.

      The Taliban reinforced their militia with an elite force (which was somehow transferred from north to west of the country - they say Iran gave a corridor to the border).

    "The army’s armored SUV, the police" ranger "and a large number of weapons and ammunition fell into the hands of the militants"
    It’s interesting, but what about the Americans, besides protecting themselves and plantations? And then they trumpet the whole world as “heroically” fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, whom Russia “helps” and even “win”. The Taliban obviously do not touch them (the Americans) by mutual agreement.

    The Taliban, as promised, began operations against pro-American forces. Only their leader spoke of the fact that the American military, their bases and convoys would be the priority goals, while the government’s forces were mainly in distribution. Or is it just a workout for the Taliban? True, the other day, "someone" dropped an American helicopter in Afghanistan, but this is still an isolated case.

    Again, power is changing. These villages seem to change hands several times a year. The stalemate, the parties can not achieve decisive success.

      The Taliban, on the contrary, are against them because of the discovery in Jerusalem and became more active in jihad
