    Taliban seize dozens of security posts, at least 37 soldiers missing in Urozgan

    By Khaama Press - Thu May 28 2015,

    Taliban militants have sized dozens of security posts while 37 soldiers have gone missing in restive Urozgan province.

    Mohammad Hanif Hanafi a senator says that before Taliban cold run over the check posts in Khas Urozgan and Dehrawould districts a number of soldiers committed suicide in the fear not to be brutally killed by Taliban.

    He said a number of other security posts are under serious threat of the militant group and over 50 soldiers are facing a serious threat in these posts.

    In Khas Urozgan district at least 37 soldiers have gone missing from their posts.

    There are conflicting reports about them. According to some reports the soldiers have escaped from their posts after they run out of ammunition but some other reports suggest that the soldiers have joined hands with Taliban.

    But Abdul Karim Karimi, governor for Khas Urozgan says that a number of these soldiers have been executed by Taliban.

    Local residents in Khas Urozgan say there are serious clashes between security forces and Taliban since about two weeks in this district.

    According to these residents Taliban are in about a kilometer distance from the capital city of this district.

    the point is, Afganis feel left out from every body, USA, NATO, their own leaders?
    someone has to take and fill the power vaccum, if not the civilized world then Taliban will do so.
    the question is do we want Taliban to take reign of Afganistan?
    the nothern alliance should work hard in collaboration with the Afganis to rout the problem. they shoul avoid incompetent nato and USA in this matter.
