(Reuters) -
Seven people were killed in an attack claimed by the Taliban on a base operated by Polish and Afghan forces in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday, officials and a Reuters witness said.
Ghanzi province's deputy governor said the attackers detonated an explosive-laden truck at the rear of the base and a car bomb at the main gate, before a six hour gunbattle inside involving up to 10 of the 15 assailants.
 
Four policemen and three civilians were killed, and 10 Polish soldiers and 52 Afghan security force members and civilians had been wounded by the time the fighting ended around 10 p.m., Ahmadullah Ahmadi said.
Violence has intensified across Afghanistan this week as Taliban insurgents seek to increase pressure on NATO contingents preparing to withdraw by the end of 2014.
Another 20 people died in a spate of bombings elsewhere in the country over the past 24 hours.
Claiming responsibility for the attack on the base, the Taliban said a suicide bomber detonated himself near a truck loaded with explosives.
"The bombing wiped out the security posts and the first checkpoint while other fighters, armed with heavy and light weapons, managed to get inside," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in an email.
Gunshots rang into the night following the attack at around 4 p.m. A Reuters witness saw column of black smoke rising from the base in the provincial capital.
Elsewhere in Afghanistan, two attacks in Helmand province on Wednesday killed three soldiers, 10 Afghan civilians and wounded more than 20 other people, police and provincial officials said.
One of the attacks took place in Helmand's provincial capital Lashkar Gah, where a suicide bomber blew himself up near a foreign troop convoy but without killing or wounding any of the soldiers targeted, a spokeswoman for the NATO-led force said.
In the second attack, on the outpost of Nad Ali in Helmand, a suicide bomber in a car killed three soldiers, officials said.
Helmand has been the scene of some of the fiercest fighting between NATO-led forces and the insurgents since the overthrow of the radical Islamist Taliban in 2001.
On Tuesday, in the western province of Farah, Taliban insurgents torched 40 trucks that supply NATO-led forces with fuel and killed six Afghan drivers, the provincial governor's spokesman, Abdul Rahman Zhwanday, said.
And in Kabul, a suicide bomber targeted a government ministry, killing himself and one other person, according to security sources in the capital.

Taliban Bikin AS Kewalahan

Tajuk.co, HERAT -- http://tajuk.co/news/taliban-bikin-as-kewalahan

Begitu banyak korban tentara Amerika Serikat (AS) dan logistik, termasuk peralatan militer. Amerika Serikat tengah menghadapi situasi yang sangat sulit di Afghanistan, terutama pasca Pakistan melakukan dialog dan perdamaian dengan Taliban.

Seperti diketahui, dari berbagai media massa disebut bahwa AS tengah mengalami 'pukulan' bertubi-tubi. Taliban melancarkan serangan jibaku, yang menewaskan 27 diplomat Amerika Serikat (AS) dan puluhan tentara terluka di Konsulat AS dalam sebuah operasi di Afghanistan. Serangan dimulai pagi ini sekitar pukul 06.00 waktu setempat yang mengakibatkan hancurnya gedung Konsulat akibat hantaman bom itu.

Adalah seorang pelaku Imarah Islam, Sayed Amin Hilal, dari distrik Gelan provinsi Ghazni yang meledakkan sebuah truk yang bermuatan 8 ton bahan peledak di gerbang Konsulat.

Setelah ledakan, delapan anggota singa Islam lainnya, yang dilengkapi dengan bahan rompi yang penuh dengan bahan peledak, menyelinap mendekati gedung dan mengambil posisi yang menargetkan para korban, yang dekat dengan gedung maupun luar gedung.

Adapun 'pukulan' selanjutnya yakni berlangsungnya pertempuran yang sengit yang mengakibatkan 17 tentara Amerika tewas dan 35 lainnya luka-luka.

Tak cuma itu, sejumlah kendaraan lapis baja termasuk 12 kendaraan pengangkut hancur. Opersi militer yang dijalankan oleh para pasukan Taliban itu rupanya berhasil menghancurkan dan menimbulkan kerugian di pihak AS. (ANG)

Amerika Serikat Menjelang Kehancuran di Afghanistan

Herat (voa-islam.com) http://www.voa-islam.com/counter/intelligent/2013/09/16/26824/amerika-serikat-menjelang-kehancuran-di-afghanistan/

Berbagai berita kekalahan dan kematian pasukan Amerika Serikat di Afghanistan terus bermunculan di berbagai media. Amerika Serikat sekarang hanya tinggal mencari jalan aman, agar bisa keluar dari Afghanistan. Termasuk sekarang Amerika Serikat berusaha membuka dialog dengan Taliban yang difasilitasi oleh pemerintah Qatar.

Amerika Serikat bernasib seperti Soviet mengalami kekalahan perang di Afghanistan. Begitu banyak korban tentaranya dan logistik yang harus ditinggalkan, termasuk peralatan militer. Amerika kesulitan mencari jalan keluar, agar bisa aman meninggalkan Afghanistsan. Inilah persoalan yang sekarang ini dihadapi oleh Amerika Serikat.

Dengan 150.000 pasukannya yang sekarang ini masih berada di Afghanistan, dan tanpa bisa mengalahkan secara total terhadap Taliban, maka Amerika Serikat menghadapi situasi yang sangat sulit untuk keluar dari Afghanistan dengna selamat. Apalagi Pakistan telah melakukan dialog dan perdamaian dengan Taliban Pakistan, sebagai langkah awal menciptakan perdamaian  di kawasan itu. 

Tetapi, Taliban di Afghnistan terus meningkatkan serangannya terhadap seluruh posisi pasukan Amerika di Afghanistan. Di Herat, Taliban melancarkan serangan jibaku, yang menewaskan 27 diplomat Amerika, dan puluhan tentara Amerika terluka di konsulat Amerika dalam operasi  syahid Afghanistan.

Serangan dimulai pagi ini sekitar pukul 06:00 waktu setempat ketika seorang pelaku syahid,  Imarah Islam (Sayed Amin Hilal) dari distrik Gelan provinsi Ghazni) meledakkan sebuah truk yang bermuatan  8 ton bahan peledak di gerbang Konsulat yang hancur, akibat hantaman bom itiu.

Setelah ledakan, 8 jihadis (singa Islam) lainnya yang dilengkapi dengan bahan rompi yang penuh dengan bahan peledak mendekati gedung dan mengambil posisi dari mana mereka menargetkan pasukan musuh  yang mendekat mereka. Kemudian, berlangsung pertempuran yang sengit yang mengakibatkan 27 diplomat Amerika tewas, dan  17 tentara Amerika tewas dan 35 lainnya luka-luka, serta sejumlah kendaraan lapis baja termasuk 12 kendaraan pengangkut hancur.

Operasi militer yang dijalankan oleh para Mujahidin Taliban itu, berhasil menghancurkan dan menimbulkan kerugian di fihak Amerika Serikat, dan mencapai kemenangan para mujahidin Taliban.

Para mujahidin yang ikut dalam perang melawan Amerika itu  antara lain :

Muhammad Dawood dari distrik Qarabagh provinsi Ghazni itu, Mehrabuddin Nasrat dari distrik Gelan provinsi Ghazni itu, Nqibullah (Yasir) dari distrik provinsi Ghazni yang Gelan, Hikmatullah Hamad dari distrik Maqur provinsi Ghazni itu, Hakeem Saeed (Dokter Muhammad) dari Bati distrik Kot provinsi Nangarhar, Abdul Wodood sharafat dari distrik Nawbahar provinsi Zabul itu, Khan Muhammad Zarqawi dari ibukota provinsi Logar dan Siddique Obaida dari distrik provinsi Zabul Nawbahar itu.


Semoga Allah Rabbul Alamin menganugerahi mereka kemuliaan disisi-Nya, dan mendapatkan ridha-Nya, dan dimasukkan ke dalam surga-Nya. Amiiin. af/hh

The attack began at 6 a.m., when two suicide car bombers exploded 60 meters from the front gate of U.S. Consulate in Herat, Afghanistan.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Taliban militants set off two suicide car bombs in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in western Afghanistan on Friday morning, triggering a gunbattle with security forces that left at least two Afghans dead.
The U.S. said all its personnel from the consulate in the city of Herat were safe and American forces later moved into the area to secure the site.
The attack underscored the perilous security situation in Afghanistan, where U.S.-led troops are reducing their presence ahead of a full withdrawal next year.

According to Afghan officials, the attack in Herat started with the Taliban setting off two bombs — one in an SUV and the other in an explosives-laden small van — while militants on foot opened a firefight with Afghan security forces around the compound in the city, 1,000 kilometers (625 miles) from Kabul.
It was not entirely clear whether any attackers managed to breach the facility, but at least two Afghans were killed and several were wounded, said an Afghan official. At least seven attackers were killed, including the two drivers of the car bombs.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi took responsibility for the attack in a phone call with The Associated Press.
Around the same time, a suicide bomber detonated his truck full of explosives near government offices in eastern Paktika province after security personnel opened fire at him. At least seven Afghan forces were wounded in the explosion, another Afghan official said.
Insurgent attacks in Afghanistan are no longer concentrated in the country's south and east, but also occur with troubling frequency in the north and west, which have been the more peaceful areas in years past. Friday's assaults came on the heels of two days of celebrations as Afghans of all backgrounds welcomed their nation's first international soccer championship win.

Afghan and U.S. officials offered slightly different accounts of what happened in Herat, differences which could not immediately be reconciled as is common in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.
According to provincial officials, the attack began around 6 a.m. with a powerful explosion caused by the suicide car bombers, some 60 meters (66 yards) from the front gate of the consulate compound. Fellow militants then engaged in a firefight with security forces in the area.

U.S. State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement that the assault began around 5:30 a.m., when "a truck carrying attackers drove to the front gate, and attackers — possibly firing rocket propelled grenades and assault rifles — starting firing at Afghan forces and security guards on the exterior of the gates. Shortly after, the entire truck exploded, extensively damaging the front gate."
Gen. Rahmatullah Safi, Herat province's chief of police, said U.S. special forces entered the area to secure the compound, and that no attackers managed to breach it. Harf's statement said "American security personnel" were among the response team, and added that "it appears American and contract security personnel addressed any attackers who managed to enter the compound."
Footage broadcast on Afghanistan's Tolo television network showed Afghan police dragging away a badly bloodied man from the scene, but it was unclear if he was dead or who he was. Rubble and twisted pieces of metal lay strewn in a seemingly wide area near the consulate, the footage showed.

Safi, chief of police in Herat province, initially said an Afghan translator who apparently worked for the consulate died in the attack, but later said that the victim was more likely a private security guard working at the compound. An Afghan police officer also was killed, while an unclear number of police, guards and civilians were wounded.
Safi said five militants were killed during the assault, as were the suicide car bombers, but the situation was under control around an hour after the start of the attack.

Windows and doors of the U.S. consulate were severely damaged during Friday's attack.

Robert Hilton, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, said "all consulate personnel are safe and accounted for."
Herat lies near Afghanistan's border with Iran and is considered one of the better developed cities in the country, with a strong Iranian influence. The U.S. consulate is located in a relatively sparsely populated part of the city, and the attack took place on Friday, a day of rest in the country.
Eastern Paktika province is much more troubled. It lies along the border with Pakistan and Taliban and al-Qaida affiliated militants are active in the region.
Friday morning's truck bombing in Paktika occurred around 6:20 a.m. in the Sar Hawza district, said Mokhlis Afghan, a spokesman for the provincial governor. Police recognized the vehicle was dangerous and shouted at the driver to stop but he ignored them. Police then opened fire, and the bomber detonated the explosives, causing a powerful blast.
Four police were wounded as were three members of the Afghan national army, Afghan said. The road was badly damaged, and windows were shattered in nearby buildings
The attacks Friday were stark reminders of the challenges facing Afghanistan, in a sharp contrast to the two previous days of celebrations. On Wednesday and Thursday, Afghans celebrated the national soccer team's 2-0 defeat of India in the South Asian Football Federation Championship.
