India condemns attack on army base in Afghanistan

Pakistan says fence on Afghan border will reduce attacks

The terrorist attack at the military base follows a news regarding killing of Umar Khalid Khorasani, who is said to Jamaat-ul-Ahrar chief and the mastermind of Army Public School massacre, in the USA drone strikes in Afghanistan, Afghanistan's Paktia province on Tuesday.

Taliban militants wiped out nearly an entire Afghan Army base in Afghanistan's Kandahar province, leaving just two Afghan soldiers there uninjured.

The Taliban claimed the attack in a media statement.

Another Taliban ambush, in northern Afghanistan, killed six police officers on Wednesday night, a spokesman for the provincial police chief told The Associated Press.

Included among a list of incidents, at least 26 Afghan soldiers were killed in July and 13 wounded in a Taliban attack on a military base in the Karzali area of Khakrez district.

"The whole base is destroyed", Waziri said. The Taliban have killed at least 58 Afghan security forces in a wave of attacks across the country, including an assault that almost wiped out the Maiwand camp in the southern Kandahar province.




Separately Thursday, militants besieged a police headquarters in the southeastern province of Ghazni, attacking it for the second time this week. Other militants pushed in and started a firefight with army soldiers.

The Taliban have been waging an insurgency for a decade and a half in an attempt to overthrow the government in Kabul.

The base itself was left in ruins, officials said.

In recent months, the Taliban have been attacking Afghan security forces on a weekly and sometimes daily basis.

They said the attackers detonated at least one explosive-packed Humvee vehicle and razed the compound in the early morning assault. The battle ended with a US airstrike that killed nine Taliban fighters, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials said.
