Newsroom24x7 Network

Washington DC: The Taliban today, 18 September 2019, claimed responsibility for a terrorist attack carried out by a suicide bomber in Kabul that killed more than 22 Afghans. 

Taliban also has claimed responsibility for a blast in the Parwan province capital of Charikar that killed more than two dozen people at a campaign rally of President Ashraf Ghani. 

For days, Afghanistan has gone through blackouts and other challenges as a result of Taliban attacks against transmission lines carrying electricity to hospitals, schools, and homes in many parts of the country.

The US in a statement today has condemned these attacks and said through these acts violence the Taliban has demonstrated blatant disregard for the people and institutions of Afghanistan.  For Afghans to truly reconcile, the Taliban must begin to demonstrate a genuine commitment to peace rather than continue the violence and destruction that causes such inordinate harm to the Afghan people and the future of their country, the US has said.
