NRF claims killing and injuring three Taliban fighters in Baghlan province

Anti-Taliban armed group, the National Resistance Front (NRF), has claimed that its forces carried out an attack against the Taliban in the Nahreen district of the northern Baghlan province, killing one Taliban soldier and injuring two others.

The NRF said in a tweet that the incident took place Tuesday at 10:30 pm when its fighters launched a guerilla attack on a Taliban in the district.

None of its forces were harmed, the NRF said.

Taliban officials in the province have not commented.

Formed after the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan and led by Ahmad Massoud, the son of Ahmad Shah Massoud, the NRF has been engaged in a guerrilla war against the Taliban in the northern and northeastern provinces of Afghanistan. The group has mostly been active in Panjshir and neighboring provinces.
