13 dead in ‘IS attack’ on Afghan Ministry

Afghanistan At least twelve killed in Kabul suicide blast

The governor of Kohistan district in Faryab was killed along with eight others in an ambush overnight, provincial governor spokesman Jawed Bidar told AFP, blaming the Taliban.

Noori said that elsewhere in Ghazni, at least three local police and 10 Taliban were killed in clashes.

In the meantime, a security official said the militants have detonated a Humvee armored personnel carrier packed with the explosives near the district security commandment compound.

"So far, we have received around 25 wounded people and 13 dead bodies to our hospital, and Afghan women are among those wounded and killed in the incident", stated the head hospital official.

Referring to border fencing, the COAS said that this is an obstacle for checking terrorism and not between people of both sides.

"The battle is ongoing as we have asked for immediate reinforcements".

A suicide bomber struck outside a government ministry in the Afghan capital on Monday, killing at least 12 people and wounding 31 others days before the start of a holiday cease-fire with the Taliban.

"The ceasefire went on effect this morning", interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish said.

COAS congratulated Afghanistan authorities on recent peace initiatives especially in respect of the holy month of Ramadan/ Eid and wished that these steps gain more of permanence ultimately leading towards an enduring peace.

Pakistan has always been accused of supporting the Taliban and providing safe haven to its leaders - charges Islamabad denies.

Although the group said it would halt attacks on state forces for three days, it vowed to continue operations against foreign troops. They said they would continue attacking US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops.

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.

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.
