Taliban captures more than 70 Afghan police in attack near the capital | FDD's Long War Journal:

The Taliban, in a statement released on its official website, claimed it “seized control [of] 13 posts and 1 base from the enemy” and “dozens of the enemy suffered casualties” and “72 surrendered themselves to Mujahideen after putting up a small resistance.”
Additionally, the Taliban said it destroyed six “tanks,” including four in an IED attack and two in “rocket fire” (likely RPGs) as Afghan forces attempted to reinforce the beleaguered Afghan forces. The “tanks” are likely US-supplied Humvees. The Taliban also claimed it seized a large quantity of weapons and war material, including “a pair of night vision binoculars.”
