Meals provides in the Afghan town of Ghazni are working low, as a fight with the Taliban rages for a fourth day, the UN has warned.

“Life is getting hard for people, they cannot get meals or water,” a person who fled the city on Sunday advised the BBC.

More than 100 other folks, mostly government soldiers and police, were killed because the Taliban stormed Ghazni from 4 sides early on Friday.

The town lies on the key highway between Kabul and Kandahar.

Control of it will successfully allow the Taliban to cut off southern Afghanistan from Kabul, the capital. The good fortune of the militants’ attack has come as a blow to the government of President Ashraf Ghani.

A Few Afghan lawmakers have also accused the federal government of ignoring their warnings about the worsening security situation in the region.

Late on Sunday, Mr Ghani stated he was once sending urgent reinforcements to town “to consolidate operational profits”. The United States-led Nato venture in Afghanistan carried out 10 air strikes on Monday and said “clearing operations” were ongoing.

It accused the Taliban of the usage of civilians as cover and said the group had “completed not anything”.

Separately, it is reported that a minimum of 100 Afghan army commandoes have long past lacking in the east of Ghazni province, in Ajristan district. Officials have denied the reports.

The fight for Ghazni and attacks elsewhere in Afghanistan come as force keeps at the Taliban to enter peace talks with the Afghan government.

Secret talks have been recently held in Qatar among Taliban and US officials after an exceptional 3-day ceasefire during Eid celebrations in June that was once largely revered through both sides.
