NRF claims killing and injuring three Taliban fighters in Kapisa province

Anti-Taliban armed group, the National Resistance Front (NRF) has claimed that its forces attacked a Taliban checkpoint in the northeastern Kapisa province, killing one Taliban soldier and injuring two others.

The NRF said in a tweet on Tuesday that the attack took place Tuesday night when its fighters launched a guerilla attack on a Taliban’s Mirwais outpost in the Kohistan district.

NRF also shared a video showing its fighters opening gunfire on the checkpoint.

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.
