On Monday, eight Afghan police officers forces were killed when Taliban fighters attacked a security post in the capital city of the western province of Farah.

All four injured are in stable condition at us medical facilities, according to the statement.

Taliban used "sophisticated" night-vision goggles to mount its latest deadly attack on Afghan forces, a media report says.

On Monday, four USA soldiers suffered injuries as the troops convoy was struck by a car-bombing in the Dand district of Kandahar province.

At least 22 policemen and 45 militants were killed after Taliban attacked police checkpoints in Maywand district of Afghanistan's southern province of Kandahar overnight, provincial police spokesman said Tuesday.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack. The attack on the U.S. military convoy in Kandahar added to the casualty toll.


"The Taliban attacked the post and did not even give the police a chance to wake up and reach their weapons ... the police were killed, still in their beds", a village elder told the Times.

Twenty two policemen also lost their lives in the clash, officials confirmed.

The Taliban have intensified attacks on security installations across the country in recent weeks in a show of strength as the United States deploys more troops to train and assist Afghan forces.

The Taliban often use bomb-laden armoured Humvees and police vehicles stolen from Afghan security forces to blast their way into security compounds.

President Donald Trump recently increased troop numbers in Afghanistan, where the U.S. has been at war for 16 years.
