At least 150 Afghan soldiers have died or been injured in a series of attacks by Taliban militants in the past 24 hours, Reuters reported on Monday, citing unnamed senior government officials.

According to them, fighting is currently raging in 26 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces. The victims are “shockingly high,” added one official.
According to the Afghan government, the struggle for territory has intensified in proportion to the United States continuing to withdraw its troops from the country.
Political talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban have largely stalled. Both sides accuse each other of provocations and attacks on civilians, Reuters noted. US President Joe Biden has ordered the military to complete the withdrawal of the remaining 2,500 US troops from Afghanistan by September 11 this year.
The Taliban announced on Monday that it would not punish Afghans who cooperated with them after the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country, but only if they “regretted” their actions.Read more Expert: We will not turn the Taliban into lovers of democracy
