16 Afghan army soldiers killed by Taliban in Kunduz

Another ten soldiers also were taken hostage by the Taliban.

At least 16 Afghan Army soldiers were killed in a Taliban attack on Imam Sahib district of Kunduz province, Afghan security sources said on Wednesday.

Another ten soldiers were taken hostage by the Taliban, said the source.

Also, Fatima Aziz, a PM from Kunduz, said “16 were killed Baghe Shirkat.” 

Violence has increased around the country as Taliban leadership told its troops on Monday to resume attacks on the Afghan government, following a peace deal between the United States and the Taliban in the wake of a Reduction in Violence (RIV) period from February 22-29.

A sticking point in the continued peace process is a dispute between President Ashraf Ghani and the Taliban over a prisoner release.
