AFGHANISTAN: ‘ Government Forces retake City of Kunduz from Taliban ‘

#AceNewsReport – AFGHANISTAN:June.23: Afghan government forces regained control of a key district near the northern city of Kunduz on Tuesday. Chardara district was captured two days before, and Taliban militants threatened to take a provincial capital for the first time since being driven from power in 2001.

The brief capture of Chardara brought fighting to a bridge just 3km away from the Kunduz governor’s compound.

Tuesday’s victory came despite signs that insurgents were stepping up offensive in the broader war, Reuters said.

“All those involved in this extremist movement will be criminally prosecuted,” the prosecutor’s office said.
