Afghanistan: Militants attack security checkpoint in Ghor province June 12

Afghanistan News Alert

Militants kill seven security personnel in an attack on a security checkpoint in Pasaband district (Ghor province) on June 12; further attacks targeting security personnel are likely in the near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 6/13/2020, 12:00 AM until 6/15/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Kabul). COUNTRY/REGION Pasaband district (Ghor province), Ghor province


Militants killed seven security personnel during an attack on a security checkpoint in Pasaband district (Ghor province) on Friday night (local time), June 12. Local police authorities have blamed the Taliban for the attack, although the Taliban are yet to comment and there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Further attacks targeting security personnel in Ghor province are likely in the near term.


Taliban militants launch attacks on government personnel, security forces, and civilians in Afghanistan on a near-daily basis. Such assaults are, in part, intended to undermine the perceived capacity of Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) - and the Afghan government more broadly - to adequately provide security in the wake of the withdrawal of most US-led NATO forces from the country and to gain leverage amid ongoing peace negotiations.


Those in Ghor province are advised to monitor developments, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
