Afghan local police come under attack late Thursday from the Taliban-led insurgents who have been testing the local security forces since they took the lead in the war.
Muhammad Ali Muhammadi, deputy governor of Ghazni confirmed the incident, saying at least four local police were killed and some were wounded in a fierce clash between local police and the armed oppositions in Dehe Yak district of Ghazni province.
According to Muhammadi, three Taliban corpses remained in the battlefield and the exact Taliban death toll is unclear.
Local officials added that other local police who had come for covering from other stations were faced embedded mines and three of them killed.
The Taliban have stepped up attacks on Afghan soldiers and security forces in recent months, coinciding with the conclusion of the U.S. and NATO’s combat mission at the end of last year.
