Sherzad noted that at least one police officer was killed and two others were injured during the clashes with the Taliban militants.
In the meantime, the Taliban group has also stormed the security checkpoints of Soor, Shoorab and Deh Yak in the center of Farah province.
According to Sherzad, at least four Taliban insurgents were killed and seven of them were injured during the clashes.
He added that four Afghan security forces were also wounded in the insurgents attack.
