thTaliban have attacked a number of security posts in Bala Buluk District of western Farah province.

Reports suggest that dozens of Afghan National Civil Order Police (ANCOP) have been surrounded by Taliban in this district.

A policeman told Khaama Press by telephone that Taliban are about 100 meters away from them.

Yelling for help, he said “if immediate support does not arrive to Shiwan area, we will all die.”

He further said that two policemen have embraced martyrdom and six others wounded so far.

A reliable security source who wished not to be named said that around 50 policemen are encircled in the area.

He added that Humayoun Dilawar who is the police commander there has escaped to the provincial capital.

But the police commander rejected report about escaping from the area. Dilawar said he is trying to prepare support for the policemen who have been surrounded for three days.
