Kabul: Taliban insurgents staged attacks on three combat posts of Afghan and US forces on Monday in a southeastern Afghan province, an official for the US military said.
The official did not say how many militants were involved in the attacks or give any details about the type of the strikes in Paktika province, which lies near the border with Pakistan.
"The fighting is going on. I can`t give you further details," Sergeant Stephanie Widemond said by phone.
The resurgent Taliban have staged a number of commando style strikes, involving suicide bombers, against Afghan and foreign bases and key targets in the past two years.
