Afghan forces prepare to reclaim lost territory from Taliban

Depleted but not defeated, the Afghan army prepares for an offensive to recapture territory from the Taliban.

    Army commanders in Afghanistan say they are confident a spring offensive will help in taking back large areas of territory from the Taliban.

    As many as 21 districts have fallen to the armed group in the recent months.

    The fighting has resulted in the army's highest ever losses, while its strength has fallen to its lowest level in years.
