“Most of the victims are NDS employees,” health officials said.

At the moment, not a single group has claimed responsibility for the incident.

Recall that at the end of February in Doha (Qatar), representatives of the United States and the Taliban signed the first peace agreement in more than 18 years of war. It provides that the States will reduce the number of troops in Afghanistan, and then, if the Taliban refrain from violence, they will continue to withdraw both their forces and NATO forces within 14 months.

Under the agreement, an inter-Afghan dialogue should begin after the prisoner exchange deal. In exchange, the Taliban leaders pledged to abandon the use of Afghan territory to attack the United States and other countries.

The Taliban are demanding that the Afghan authorities release 5,000 prisoners on the basis of an agreement with the United States. Kabul agreed to gradually release 1,500 prisoners. After delaying the process of liberation of the Taliban, the leaders of the movement said they did not see the point of observing a ceasefire.

After this, the militant attacks resumed. Only last week, dozens of civilians and the military became victims of several attacks. In some cases, the Taliban have shifted the responsibility for incidents to the Islamic State.
