Despite Ceasefire, 15 People Killed, Up to 19 Wounded in 3 Attacks in Afghanistan
Local Editor

At least 19 civilians have been injured and 15 security personnel killed in three separate attacks in Afghanistan, the Pajhwok Afghan News agency reported.


An attack on a local education department in the Afghan city of Jalalabad in eastern Nangarhar province took place at around 10 am, on Monday leaving at least 10 civilians injured, the Pajhwok Afghan News agency reported citing the
 governor's spokesman Attaullah Khogyani.

One of the attackers was reportedly killed by a blast of the explosive device he had detonated while three other assailants were shot by the security forces.

Separately, 15 Afghan security personnel were killed by the radical Taliban movement in another attack on Kunduz province, the same agency reported.

Another attack on Monday in the Chaparhar district of Nangarhar province reportedly claimed the lives of 14 civilians.

The attacks took place ahead of the ceasefire between the Afghan government and the Taliban movement, timed to Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday marking the end of the month of Ramadan.

The truce was announced by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Thursday and supported by the Taliban on Saturday. Ghani said the ceasefire would not prevent the security forces from carrying out their operations against Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group].

Although no official date of the ceasefire had been announced, local press outlets indicated Tuesday as the first day of the truce.
