Taliban militants overrun Khamab district in Jawzjan province
[KhaamaPress] The local officials in northern Jawzjan confirm the Talibs have overrun the Khamab district after hours of heavy shootout.

Provincial police chief Faqir Mohammad Jawzjani confirmed that the district was overrun at around 4am local time today.

Jawzjani further added that both the Talibs and the national defense and security forces personnel have suffered casualties during the festivities.

However,
today is that tomorrow you were thinking about yesterday...
he said the exact number regarding the casualties inflicted on the security personnel and the Talibs have not been ascertained so far.

In the meantime, the security director of Jawzjan security commandment Abdul Hafiz Khashi said at least eight security personnel have bit the dust during the festivities and 3 others have sustained injuries.

He said the anti-government armed holy warriors have also sustained heavy casualties during the festivities but the exact number is not known yet as heavy festivities are still underway in the district.

Jawzjan has been among the relatively calm provinces in North of Afghanistan but the security situation of the province has tanked during the recent years.

Both the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
and ISIS loyalists operate in some districts of the province and often carry out terrorist related activities.
Tolo News adds:
Ismael, the district police chief said, “Fifty security force members have been surrounded by Taliban and if government does not send reinforcements, the security forces will be killed in the clashes,” adding that “so far ten security force members have been killed in the ongoing clashes.”

“Seven security force members have been captured by the Taliban and seven uprising forces joined the Taliban,” he added.

The Taliban have also confirmed the attack and claimed that “the district was completely captured” by Taliban fighters.
