At least five civilians were killed and seven others wounded in mortar shelling in a residential area of Ghazni’s Andar district on Monday night.

Wahidullah Jumazadah, spokesperson for the provincial governor said that the clashes between security forces and Taliban insurgents started at around 9:30 pm in the Lagharo area.

A mortar shell was fired during the fight and hit a residential house.

The dead included three women and two children from the same family. One of the victims was a woman who was getting married on Friday, Jumazadah said.

It was unclear which side had fired the rocket and investigations are underway.

However, the Taliban denied responsibility and called it a “war crime.”
