Afghan Security Forces Cause Casualties to Terrorists in Kabul

The spokesman of the police in this capital, Basir Mujahid, declared that the attackers meant to enter the building of the National Directorate of Security, action frustrated by the troops that did not have casualties and neither among the civilians who were in the place.

Nasrat Rahim, a deputy interior ministry spokesman, said the sound of large and small arms fire could be heard from the fighting. Kabul police spokesman Basir Mujahid said two police officers were injured but there were no civilian casualties. "It [the attack] happened suddenly... the police arrived in the area fast and blocked the roads, not allowing anyone to get to their homes", Naweed, a student, told AFP. There was no immediate claim of responsibility from the Taliban, who regularly stage attacks across the country and have seized control of several districts.

Another government official said the attack was near the intelligence agency training center.

The ISIS attack came a day after Taliban fighters in the southern province of Helmand stormed police outposts near the provincial capital of Lashkar Gah, killing more than a dozen police personnel.
