Two police officers and five Taliban militants were killed in Afghanistan's northern province of Kunduz during a predawn fighting on Friday, a local official confirmed, APA reports citing Xinhua.
"The clashes broke out early Friday morning after Taliban militants stormed a police station in Mahmoryat-e-Duwum locality on the outskirts of provincial capital Kunduz city. Two policemen and two militants were also wounded during the two-hour fighting," provincial government spokesman Esmatullah Muradi told Xinhua.
The province has been the scene of heavy clashes, as the Taliban has been frequently launching hit-and-run attacks against security forces.
On Wednesday, 12 Afghan army soldiers were killed and four others wounded after the Taliban stormed an army military camp in Bagh-e-Sherkat, an area on the northern outskirts of the city.
