Blasts in three Afghan provinces; four hurt

The blast occurred on a Taliban military vehicle in the province, according to local sources, Khaama press reported.

Recently, Afghanistan has witnessed a sharp surge in violence as data from the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission shows that in 2020, over 2,000 people were killed in incidents, for which no one claimed responsibility and the brutalities since then have only ascended.

In the last few months, Afghanistan has witnessed a surge in blasts despite the ongoing intra-Afghan peace talks to resolve the conflict in the country. Meanwhile, no terror group has so far taken responsibility for the attacks.
