Maidan-e Wardak is one of the insecure provinces of Afghanistan which in some of its parts the militant groups are activating.

In the meantime, officials of the Doshi district of Baghlan province say that at least 5 civilians were injured during Taliban attacks on Afghan security forces.

Sahmsuddin Sarhadi, chief district of Dushi told to media outlets that the armed Taliban group with an ambush on security commander’s vehicle started gunfire on Thursday.

Taliban have claimed that they have destroyed a military vehicle and killed three of Afghan security forces.

But these statements have been rejected by Baghlan’s local officials; adding Afghan security forces have not suffered any causality.

Since warring sides exaggerate the casualties of opponents in Afghanistan, it is difficult to verify with independent sources in the militancy-plagued country.

Militancy and conflicts usually get momentum in spring and summer in Afghanistan commonly known as fighting season among Afghans.
