Herat: Afghanistan security forces on Tuesday night thwarted Taliban terrorists' attempt to attack India-built  Salma Dam in Herat province, country's government confirmed on Wednesday.

A government official said the terrorists suffered heavy casualties.

The security forces counter-attacked which forced the Taliban terrorists to escape the spot.

Afghan defense ministry spokesperson Fawad Aman tweeted: "The Taliban attack on Salma Dam failed! #Terrorist Taliban attacked the #Salma Dam in Herat province to destroy it last night. But, fortunately they have suffered heavy casualties and fled the area as result of counter-attacks of #ANDSF."

Afghanistan is witnessing a rise in violence in recent times ever since the foreign forces started leaving the country.

The Taliban has started capturing several regions in the country.
