The week started out with an attack between police, the Taliban, and the ANP. It lasted several hours, and the security forces received no backup support despite many calls for it. The fight resulted in 50 security forces dead along with an unnumbered amount of Taliban casualties. On Wednesday night following this attack an airstrike was carried out on the Taliban. This airstrike took out 12 militants and left 14 wounded.
