Taliban militants have launched an attack against an Afghan army recruitment center in the western province of Farah, the latest in a series of attacks that rocked the country despite ongoing peace talks between the militants and the United States.
Axar.az reports citing Press TV that the militants set the army center ablaze after a coordinated attack launched overnight from several points around Farah city, according to Mohibullah Mohib, a police spokesman in Farah.
"Taliban fighters are pushing to take over the prison but the security forces are resisting," Mohib said.
There were no immediate reports of casualties among either the Afghan forces or the militants.
American forces have remained bogged down in Afghanistan through the presidencies of George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and now Donald Trump.
The group has so far rejected the proposal to lay down arms and instead calls on the US to end the use of force in Afghanistan. It also insists that talks cannot move ahead until foreign forces leave the country.
