Kabul, Nov 22 (TIWN) The Taliban has staged attacks in at least 50 districts across 16 Afghan provinces following the signing of the peace deal with the US in February and most of these took place in the last two months after negotiations began in Qatar on September 12, sources said.

The sources said on Thursday that the provinces comprised Uruzgan, Kandahar, Helmand, Farah, Nimroz, Herat, Badghis, Faryab, Jawzjan, Sar-e-Pul, Balkh, Samangan, Baghlan, Kunduz, Takhar and Badakhshan, reports TOLO News.

Clashes between the Taliban and security forces were still ongoing in Uruzgan’s Gizab and Khas districts, considered as two of the most sensitive.

Data from the Ministries of Defence and Interior Affairs revealed that over the last six months, the Taliban has carried “dozens of attacks across the country, including 50 suicide attacks in which over 1,200 civilians have been killed”.
