Taliban Attack Third Provincial Capital in a Week

FARAH — Taliban have attacked a third provincial capital in less than a week, with an overnight assault on the western city of Farah, security officials said on Friday.
Provincial Governor Mohammad Shoaib Sabet said there’s no immediate word of casualties early Friday and that airstrikes have been carried out against the militant group.
The growing violence comes as a US envoy said he and Taliban have reached a deal “in principle” on ending America’s longest war.
Resident Shams Noorzai said the enemies seized an army recruitment center close to Farah’s main police headquarters and set it on fire. He said all shops have been closed and some people were trying to flee.
The Taliban over the weekend also launched deadly attacks on the capitals of Kunduz and Baghlan provinces.
