Dozens killed as Taliban, IS launch multiple attacks across Afghanistan

At least 25 Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers and two Taliban insurgents have been killed during a clash in the Bala Baluk district of western Farah province, an official said on Saturday.

The area lies close to the NATO's headquarters and not far from the American Embassy.

Kabul witnessed no sign of "sincere" cooperation from Islamabad in counter-terrorism efforts, says government.

The Talbian claimed responsibility and said two of their fighters were killed.

In Kabul, a suicide bomber detonated his explosives in an area dotted with key diplomatic buildings.

The headquarters of the United States-led global forces in Afghanistan was briefly locked down after that attack, but opened soon after for a briefing by members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation delegation, led by Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, the supreme allied commander in Europe.

That attacker reportedly resented North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and posted pro-Marxist memes online.

Last week, the Taliban staged similar attacks, killing at least 20 police officiers in the provincial capital Farah City and in the Bala Balook district.

The Taliban claimed that attack too.

"A large number of Taliban [jihadists] attacked an army outpost and we lost 18 soldiers and two were wounded", said Dawlat Waziri, spokesman for the Ministry of Defense.

Afghan media claimed that it was a suicide attack in which security forces were the target.

The recent attacks have underscored the weaknesses of Afghan security forces more than 16 years after the USA -led invasion toppled the Taliban.

Violence in Afghanistan has surged since US President Donald Trump outlined a more aggressive strategy for the country in August 2017, with US-led forces carrying out increased airstrikes and the Taliban responding with bombings, ambushes, and raids.
