Taliban militants have reportedly entered the capital of Afghanistan’s southern province of Helmand after launching a large-scale attack in the area.

The militants attacked security checkpoints inside the city of Lashkargah on Monday, said the Interior Ministry spokesman, Sediq Sediqq.

Sediqq said the country’s security forces “will soon push them back.”

However, the Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed the militants were advancing through the town.
