Taliban kill 11 in Attack on Afghan intelligence Chemical

Taliban insurgents established an intricate assault in an intelligence compound in northern Afghanistan on Monday that started with a suicide bombing and murdered at least 11 intelligence bureau employees, officials said.

The assault happened in Aybak, the backing of this Samangan province. Sediq Azizi, a spokesman for the provincial governor, stated the other 63 individuals were injured in the assault and the consequent clashes.

A suicide bomber struck the chemical, followed by 2 insurgents who opened fire. The blast in the first bombing may be heard slough off and ruined several buildings that are nearby.

Abdul Khalil Musadiq, a provincial hospital leader, said a lot of these injured were civilians, including kids.

The Taliban claimed the assault. The insurgents have continued to routinely aim Afghan security forces despite signing a peace agreement with all the U.S. in February which was meant to pave the way for an end to decades of warfare.

On Sunday, the Taliban attacked checkpoints from the northern Kunduz province, killing at least 14 Afghan security forces, based on Esmatullah Muradi, a spokesman for the provincial governor.

The Taliban stated they had been behind the attacks but maintained government forces fired mortar shells in reaction, hitting civilian houses — a promised dismissed from the Defence Ministry.

Even the Taliban and government forces have been trading blame on a recent surge in violence across Afghanistan — even as efforts continue to attempt to bring about the beginning of direct peace talks between the government and the insurgents.

President Ashraf Ghani condemned the assault in Samangan and accused the Taliban of attempting to strengthen their hands before any discussions.

The Taliban accuse government forces of targeting them in their houses, with their own families bearing the brunt of these surgeries. The government claims that the insurgents continue to attack security forces and civilians.
