Afghan forces bomb Taliban in bid to halt advance on cities
Aljazeera says Afghan forces fought fierce street battles and bombed Taliban positions as the group’s fighters swarmed major cities amid an intensifying nationwide offensive.
Hundreds of commandos were deployed to the western city of Herat while authorities in the southern city of Lashkar Gah called for more troops to rein in the assaults on Sunday even as Afghan air strikes left scores dead on the streets, residents said.
At least five civilians were killed when a mortar shell struck a taxi in Afghanistan’s southern Kandahar province on Sunday, police said.
