NRF claims killing and injuring two Taliban forces in Kabul

The National Resistance Front (NRF), an anti-Taliban armed group, has claimed that its operatives killed and injured two Taliban forces in Kabul.

NRF said in a statement on X that its operatives carried out an attack on a Taliban police headquarters in Guldara district in Kabul province Saturday night which erupted in a clash between both sides.

The statement indicated that NRF inflicted casualties on the Taliban forces, but the exact numbers are not yet available.

Following this clash, NRF added, its forces killed one Taliban fighter and injured another when they engaged in a separate clash while they were returning to their bases.

One of its forces also sustained minor injuries in this fight, NRF noted.

The Taliban has not commented.

This comes after the deadly clashes that erupted in Badakhshan province in recent weeks.

Last week, NRF claimed that its forces killed or injured 45 Taliban fighters in these clashes, adding that at least four of its forces, including its Commander Tahir, were also killed and two others wounded.

NRF is an armed group formed of former security forces under the leadership of Ahmad Masoud, son of the Jihadi commander Ahmad Shah Masoud. The group has challenged the Taliban in deadly battles mainly in the north and northeastern provinces.
