US and Afghanistan launch air strikes as Taliban attack western city
Militants attacked a provincial government building in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, killing at least ten people, officials said.
Fared Bakhtawer, head of the provincial council, offered a different picture, however, saying that several security checkpoints in Farah were overrun by the Taliban.
"Heavy fighting continues inside the city and aircraft have just started bombarding Taliban positions", she said.
The residents feared that the Taliban radical movement would gain control of the city if the government did not send more troops soon, the media outlet said.
In January, NATO's Resolute Support Mission, tasked with building up the Afghan government's security forces, assessed that almost 15 percent of the country's 407 districts - more than 20 percent of the landmass - was under insurgent control or influence, according to a watchdog report released this month.
"We had casualties in Farah, Baghlan and Ghor", defense ministry's deputy spokesman Mohammad Radmanish said.
Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, claimed responsibility for the attack.
This comes as the Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since the group announced its spring offensive but the Afghan forces have also stepped up efforts to counter the militants attacks.
Meanwhile, Abdul Basir Salangi, provincial governor, confirmed heavy fighting in the city.
