The Taliban launched a complex attack on foreign embassies in the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul. Afghan security forces finally overpowered the terrorists Monday morning, after 18 hours.
Authorities said one police officer and at least 17 terrorists were killed in the multi-prong attacks, which took place in three eastern cities as well as the capital. In addition to several foreign embassies, Taliban terrorists also targeted nato bases and the Afghan parliament using assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and suicide bombers. A Taliban spokesman said that the complex assault is just the beginning of the group’s spring resurgence.
The violence shows that the Taliban is far from beaten as the United States and nato draw down their forces in Afghanistan. It is becoming more and more obvious that the U.S. has lost the war in Afghanistan.
