An Afghan military base, of the 209th Corps of the Afghan army near the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, was attacked by Taliban gunmen wearing Afghan military uniforms on Friday. The attack lasted several hours and targeted soldiers as they attended mosque and ate a meal.

Out of the ten attackers, two attackers blew themselves up, seven were killed and one was detained. The attack began at around 2 pm.
