AFF claims killing one Taliban soldier and wounding three in Taloqan city

Local sources in Takhar province have confirmed that at least one Taliban soldiers has been killed and three wounded after an attack by Afghanistan Freedom Front on a checkpoint in Taloqan city.

Armed anti-Taliban group, the Afghanistan Freedom Front (AFF), claimed on Monday evening that its forces had attacked a checkpoint, known as Gaavmali, in the provincial capital at around 7:20pm local time.

The Afghanistan Freedom Front is one of the two main armed groups fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.

On May 10, the AFF claimed it had killed three Taliban members and wounded two in Kabul. And a day earlier, the group claimed killing three and wounding four in a rocket attack in Kapisa province.

In April, the AFF confirmed the death in combat of six of its members, including senior commanders Akmal Ameer and Basir Andarabi.
