Kabul [Afghanistan], Aug 27 (ANI/Sputnik): Taliban terrorists have attacked an Afghan National Army (ANA) base in Afghanistan's western province of Farah, a Sputnik correspondent said on Thursday.

He added that 40 Afghan soldiers are stationed at the ANA base, located in the Pashtrood district.
Meanwhile, the Taliban have said that a vehicle loaded with explosives went off at the base.
