KABUL, Aug 31 (Reuters / EP) –
Several Taliban groups have launched an attack from multiple positions on the city of Kunduz, capital of the province of the same name, in the northeast of the country early this Saturday, and would have captured several facilities, including a hospital, a building electrical supplies and a police station.
The assault began around 1 a.m. local time – approximately 10:30 p.m. on Friday in Spain – as confirmed by provincial advisers Amruddin * Wali and * Ghulam Rabbani Rabbani to Reuters.
This is the third time the insurgents have attacked the city since 2015, according to estimates by the Afghan network TOLO News. According to media sources, the fighting is being “intense” particularly in the immediate vicinity of the city.
The number of victims that this attack has left for the moment, which occurs in full peace negotiations between the insurgents and the United States, is unknown.
