According to local sources, a convoy transporting the Taliban 207 Al-Farooq Corps forces was attacked on Monday morning in Herat, a province in the west of Afghanistan.

Mohammad Shah Rasool, the Taliban’s spokesperson for the Heart police chief, confirmed that the attack targeted Taliban forces in the 4th district of Herat province, when unidentified gunmen assaulted a vehicle carrying Taliban forces.

In contrast to claims from eyewitnesses who claim that two Taliban security personnel were killed and more than 20 soldiers and civilians were injured in the armed attack, the spokesperson said that the armed attack did not result in casualties to the Taliban.

He further added that one of the attackers was killed during the attack on the Taliban security personnel.

According to the local sources, the wounded were taken to the Herat Central Hospital to receive treatment.

No organization or group, so far, has claimed responsibility for the attack on 207 Al-Farooq Corps forces.
