Eleven killed in two separate attacks by Taliban in Afghanistan

Eleven killed in two separate attacks by Taliban in Afghanistan

Kabul, Aug 25 (UNI) At least eleven security personnel were killed and scores of people wounded in
two separate attacks by Taliban in central and northern provinces in Afghanistan since Monday night, officials said on Tuesday.
Eight Afghan security personnel were killed and several people wounded in an attack at a police checkpoint in Shahrak district of the central Afghan province of Ghor on Monday night, district chief Mohammad Sakhi Saburiar said on Tuesday.
The condition of two officers is 'grave,' the officials said.
In another attack three people were killed and several wounded in a truck bomb explosion in Balkh province in Northern Afghanistan.
A suicide bomber blasted an explosive-laden truck targeting an Afghan commando base. Two commandos and a civilian were killed and several people, including women and children, were wounded, the officials said.
The attacks by Taliban on Afghan security forces have recently increased after an agreement between the United States and Taliban in Doha on February 29. According to the agreement, Taliban will reduce violence as an initial step towards intra-Afghan peace talks for lasting peace in the war-ravaged country.
The Taliban also asked the Afghan government to release about 5000 Taliban prisoners as a pre-condition in a prisoner swap for peace talks.
The Afghanistan government released 3,600 Taliban prisoners but was hesitant about releasing 400
hard core Taliban. A Loya Jirga (assembly of Afghan elders) recommended the release of the remaining 400 hard core Taliban which was subsequently okayed by President Ashraf Ghani.
