The terrorists are said to have entered the region from the neighboring provinces of Kunduz and Takhar. According to the broadcaster, security forces successfully pushed back the terrorists and guaranteed the safety of the district's residents.

The number of casualties, however, remains unknown, TOLOnews added.

Afghanistan has long been suffering from unstable political, social and security issues due to the activity of Daesh and the Taliban, which launched its spring offensive in late April.
