Skirmishes between Taliban fighters and Afghan security forces recommence after a three-day ceasefire expired in Afghanistan.
US and NATO officials said that US troop strength in Afghanistan is down to nearly 8,600, well ahead of a schedule agreed with Taliban in late February, in part because of concerns about the spread of the coronavirus.
Most of the attacks took place on Sunday. Though the Taliban and the US struck a deal last month, the insurgents haven't agreed to a ceasefire with Kabul's forces and fighting has not ended.
A US drone strike that left more than 30 farmers dead is another untold tragedy that rarely gets covered.
Dozens of militants stormed multiple security outposts in the volatile southern province of Zabul in the coordinated attack that took place early on Sunday.
