The Taliban claimed responsibility for this and other attacks on Monday.

The raids in the southern province of Kandahar and the western province of Farah on Monday night came hours after a suicide attacker rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into a United States military convoy, wounding four soldiers.

A Taliban spokesman, Qari Yusuf Ahmadi, said that 13 Afghan police officers were killed in the Monday attack.

The attack by a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device happened at about 2 p.m. local time, according to the statement from Resolute Support.

All four injured are in stable condition at USA medical facilities, according to the statement.

On Oct. 19, 43 Afghan army soldiers were killed, nine injured and six others went missing after Taliban attacked an army camp in the same district and the clashes on that day also left 10 militants dead.

"There are signs the Taliban may have used night vision technology to approach and surprise our forces, though they were spotted before reaching the posts and suffered casualties", Mehri said.

Senior provincial officials, including chairman of the provincial assembly Jamil Amini, has repeatedly blamed Iran for equipping and supporting the Taliban in the Afghan province, a claim rejected by Tehran.

Kandahar police said the attack was one of the biggest attacks by the Taliban in the last few years.

The Taliban often use bomb-laden armoured Humvees and police vehicles stolen from Afghan security forces to blast their way into security compounds.

A vehicle-borne improvised explosive device attack left four U.S. soldiers wounded in Kandahar, Afghanistan on Monday, a USA military spokesman said.
