Taliban Escalating Violence in Afghanistan’s Major Cities: Acting Interior Minister

Kabul: The Taliban plans to increase violence in major cities of Afghanistan like Nangarhar, Herat, Mazar, among others, said Hayatullah Hayat, Acting Interior Minister, at a press conference in Kabul on Sunday.

“On Friday alone, six civilians, including children, were killed in Nangarhar, Laghman, Khost and Sar-e-Pul and 21 people were injured,” said Hayat. He added that delegations have been sent to various provinces to review the security situation in the cities.

The Taliban, which vowed to not attack the country’s cities in a February 29 agreement between the group and the US in Doha, is yet to comment on the matter.
