Provincial governor's spokesman Arif Noori confirmed that the militants launched a coordinated attack on Moqor districts in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Taliban fighters killed a district governor in northern Afghanistan and kept up the pressure to seize control over some parts of Faryab province, ignoring the temporary ceasefire announced by the government that came into effect on Tuesday.
Javed Bedar, spokesman for Faryab province confirmed the death of a district governor and that the district centre had fallen to Taliban.
According to the official, the clashes between the two sides still continue in the vicinity of the district.
The attack, which IS claimed via their Amaq propaganda agency, killed 13 people and wounded 31, said Mr. Azhand.
"The battle is ongoing as we have asked for immediate reinforcements".
"We have ordered our forces to defend with all their power if they are attacked by an enemy that has no respect for anything".
IS has claimed responsibility for many attacks in Kabul but security officials say several are much more likely to be the work of the Haqqani network, a group affiliated with the Taliban.
"Pakistan wishes to see a national unity government in Kabul and US/NATO succeeding to bring peace in Afghanistan", Asif Ghafoor, the official spokesman Pakistan's Armed Forces tweeted.
The militants have also said their ceasefire does not extend to US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces, while Kabul said operations against foreign fighters including the Islamic State group will continue.
Taliban and IS militants have stepped up their attacks on Kabul in particular in recent years, making it the deadliest place in the country for civilians. They said they would continue attacking US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops.
The Taliban, the largest insurgent group in Afghanistan, has pledged to observe its own, shorter truce during that same period, coinciding with the three days of Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim religious holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
If it holds, analysts had expressed cautious optimism that the agreements could help build trust between the government and the Taliban and lay the groundwork for peace talks.
