fallen to its lowest level in years tony berkeley reports from kabul. this remote afghan army outpost is one of thousands nationwide often isolated and in inhospitable areas they are the first line of defense against taliban and i saw fighters as well as the most vulnerable the grays of fallen soldiers since the u.s. pulled out its ground forces three years ago the afghan army has borne the brunt of the fighting with the taliban and the casualties inflicting ever greater casualties to the armed forces who are now the number of casualties or dozens every day so people have lost. the meaning of body counting we have become indifferent officially the government says forty five thousand members of the security services have been killed since two thousand and fifteen and officially afghan analysts say that number could easily be doubled the overall army strength has dropped to its lowest level in years as the military confronts its biggest ever crisis but army

chiefs maintain that morale remains good. we have a volunteer army but it's their own choice to serve there is no doubt that we suffer lots. of disabled. is high because the goal is freedom and to serve the people of afghanistan and. in the past few months the military has lost control of more than twenty areas to taliban fighters who seem able to strike anywhere. in total we have lost twenty one districts in all of afghanistan it is because of the change in tactics on the ground so we are planning a spring offensive it will take two to three months to retake all these districts from the taliban but real reimposed the rule of law. eight thousand recruits every year passed out of this training center in the capital kabul most of them are trained by afghan instructors taught by western military experts who despite the
