NRF claims killing and injuring two Taliban fighters in Parwan province

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

The NRF said in a tweet on Saturday that the attack took place on Friday night when its fighters opened gunfire at a Taliban checkpoint in the Joy Prozha village, located in the Bagram district of Parwan.

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.
