Over a dozen NATO supply vehicles carrying goods and fuel for US-led troops have been destroyed in an ambush by militants in southern Afghanistan, Press TV reports.


The attack was carried out on the highway that links Herat to Kandahar in Farah Province late on Wednesday.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying its militants attacked and destroyed a convoy of seven trucks and four support vehicles.

The group says it killed at least 14 people and wounded 11 more in the attack.

In a similar incident on Tuesday, another convoy of NATO tankers and supply vehicles came under attack in the southern province of Zabul.

Trucks carrying supplies from Pakistan to the US-led forces deployed in Afghanistan come under frequent attacks in the war-torn country.

Pakistan is the cheapest way for the Western military alliance to dispatch supplies to the foreign forces in the landlocked country.
