Over the past few days, the Kabul government has created a 6,000-strong force to stop the Taliban advance in the Afghan province of Ghazni. According to pro-government sources, this force has already retook control of the Malistan district. However, clashes between pro-government forces and the Taliban are still ongoing in the province.
In the province of Logar, over 12 pro-government fighters were reportedly killed in the recent clashes with the Taliban. In the Nawa district northeast of Kabul, 7 pro-government fighters were killed and 2 others were wounded.
