The Taliban militants launched coordinated attack on the provincial capital of Ghazni province in the early hours of Friday morning as sporadic clashes continue between the Afghan forces and the assailants.

The 203rd Thunder Corps Director of Operations Gen. Mohammad Alam Nejrabi said the Afghan National Defense and security Forces have repulsed the attack, inflicting heavy casualties on the militants.

He said the provincial city and all other districts are under total control of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces.

The US Military in Afghanistan in a short statement said “U.S. Forces responded with close-air support this morning in Ghazni. Afghan forces held their ground and maintain control of all government centers.”

There are no reports available regarding the exact casualties toll of the militants and the Afghan forces.

However, the provincial governor’s spokesman Mohammad Arif Noori had earlier said at least seven security personnel sustained injuries during the attack.
