“Helmand is on the verge of collapse; 58 people were martyred during a single night.”

Karim Amini reports for Tolo News that the Taliban have launched a fresh offensive against hard-pressed Afghan security forces in Helmand with fighting on multiple fronts in the volatile districts of Nad-e-Ali, Gereshk, Marjah, Nahr-e-Saraj and Khanshin.

Worryingly I have been unable to reach my contacts in the district to corroborate these reports. My thoughts are with them.
