ANSF Winning Most Firefights Against Taliban
LTG Mark Milley, the commander of ISAF Joint Command (IJC), says that the Taliban is losing most of the firefights with the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF). "The Taliban rarely masses its forces in direct confrontation with Afghan forces . . . " (of course not, guerrillas don't do that). The general reports that the ANSF engaged in about 3,000 to 4,000 firefights over the past year but lost only 100-150 of those engagements.
