The Taliban attacked a checkpoint in Afghanistan: eight victims

Taliban insurgency has been on the rampage since the beginning of 2015 when the Afghan security forces assumed full responsibilities of security from the US and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, in addition to other attacks on Monday, according to multiple reports.

The fighters hid in a cemetery near the village of Pule Regi and watched the police officers with the night-vision goggles.

One security official were injured.

Mr. Mehri said the night-vision goggles found in Farah appeared to be Russian-made.

The country's southern provinces have seen a rise in violence against Afghan forces recently.

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

At least 40 Taliban insurgents were killed and 35 others injured after they attacked security forces' check-posts in the Kandahar province. There were no coalition fatalities reported, the statement added. The militants used sophisticated night-vision goggles to attack the officers in their beds, according to The New York Times.

The Taliban attacks have not only increased lately, but they are even beginning to employ new tactics. "Our forces resisted until they received reinforcement and air support", said Zia Durrani, spokesman for Kandahar's police chief.
