Militants Attack Afghan Spy Agency's Facility in Kabul

Gunmen opened fire near a training facility on Monday in Afghanistan's main intelligence agency in Kabul, leading to a fight with security forces that resulted in three militants being killed, local authorities said.

Afghan officials said several assailants wearing police uniforms stormed and occupied a partially constructed building before firing rockets at the nearby training center of the National Directorate of Security, or NDS.

Gulam Haydar Sarwari, the province's deputy police chief, says the attack took place on Sunday night when insurgents targeted a police security post in the remote district of Ab Kamari. Three other policemen were wounded in the assault. "The vehicle was exploded by the special forces", said Mohammad Sadiq Muradi, deputy head of security affairs at the Kabul Police Headquarters. "Our forces were careful that civilians were not harmed during their clearance operation".

Two police officers were injured but there were no civilian casualties in the attack claimed by Daesh.

. Insider and imposter attacks are a near mainstay for Afghan and US troops in the fight against the Taliban and ISIS.

USA and Afghan special operations forces are also preparing to launch a campaign against the group in northwestern Faryab and Jowzjan provinces, where it has gained a foothold, officials said.
