Multiple Casualties Reported after Blast Hit Police Head Quarter in Western Afghanistan

Sunday 18 October 2020
Multiple Casualties Reported after Blast Hit Police Head Quarter  in Western Afghanistan

Alwaght- At least 12 Afghan civilians were killed and more than 100 others wounded, after a huge explosion hit the police headquarters in the western Afghan province of Ghor.

Afghan officials said the explosion on Sunday morning took place in front of the police headquarters building.

“The explosion was very powerful,” said Ghor governor's spokesman, Aref Abir, adding that the victims were being transferred to hospitals.

Abir said the blast had also damaged neighboring buildings handling affairs for women and the disabled.

Juma Gul Yakoobi, a Ghor health official, told AFP that members of security forces were also among the victims.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Amid the unabated violence, representatives of the Taliban militant group and the  government convened last month to commence intra-Afghan talks.

In a deal clinched between the US and the Taliban in February, Washington promised to pull out all its troops by mid-2021 in return for the Taliban stopping their attacks in Afghanistan.

The war-torn country has been occupied by US-led foreign forces since 2001. Despite the occupation, many parts of the country remain plagued by militancy.

US President Donald Trump has vowed to pull US troops out of Afghanistan by Christmas.

NATO, however, has dismissed Trump’s timeline.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Thursday that members of the military alliance will jointly decide when to withdraw forces from Afghanistan.

The US-led military alliance and NATO are blamed for ongoing violence in the war-ravaged country.
