Taliban attacks have left at least 20 soldiers dead in two parts of Afghanistan’s northern Kunduz province, provincial council chief Yousuf Ayoubi says.
The militants attacked the soldiers’ facilities in Dasht-e Archi district as well as an area in the provincial capital city overnight, Ayoubi said.
According to Ayoubi and another councillor, Aminullah Aydin, another seven were wounded in the attacks.
The Taliban and the ministry of defence have not yet commented on the incidents.
Kunduz is among the most volatile provinces in the north of the country, with the majority of its territory controlled by Taliban militants.
In 2015, the entire province fell to the militants for two weeks before they were pushed back by Afghan security forces.
