Anti-Taliban group, the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRF), claims its forces attacked two Taliban outposts in the eastern province of Nooristan on Tuesday and captured 13 soldiers.
The NRF spokesperson Sibghatullah Ahmadi said in a tweet that NRF fighters had set fire to two Taliban bases in Waigal district of Nooristan province, without suffering any harm themselves.
Formed after the Taliban’s recapturing of Afghanistan, and led by Ahmad Massoud, the son of Ahmad Shah Massoud, the NRF has been engaged in guerrilla war against the Taliban in the northern and northeastern provinces of Afghanistan. It has been most active in the Panjshir province.
The Taliban has not commented.
