Kabul [Afghainstan], August 23 (ANI/Xinhua): Militants opposing the Taliban have evicted Taliban fighters from three districts in Afghanistan's northern Baghlan province, but the Taliban fighters have recaptured one of them, a local television channel Tolo News reported on Sunday.

The anti-Taliban fighters seized Pul-e-Hisar, Deh Salah and Banu districts on Friday, but the Taliban recaptured Banu on Saturday, and fighting is underway to re-take two more districts, the local media outlet reported.
