Afghan government forces are engaged in clashes with the Taliban despite U-S officials’ recent claims of breakthroughs in peace talks with the militant group.
The fighting has been ongoing over the past 24 hours. The defense ministry says an airstrike has killed a senior Taliban commander in northern Balkh province. The militants say they have killed six Afghan soldiers in neighboring Kunduz province. The fighting comes despite a new round of talks ongoing between Taliban and American representatives in Qatar. US officials have spoken of progress in the talks. Washington and the Taliban began their negotiations to end the Afghan war in 2018. But, they are yet to reach a deal.
