A complex attack by the Taliban near Bagram airfield, north of Kabul, has caused heavy loss to locals, residents said, adding that the government has not paid the required attention to help those affected by the incident.
The attack started with a car bomb and was followed by a 14-hour clash between the attackers and the security forces. At least two people were killed and over 70 others were wounded, most of them civilians.
Residents showed damaged houses to TOLOnews reporter Nasir Salehi, who said some houses were completely destroyed in the attack.
Dad-Ur-Rahman, a resident of Bagram district of Parwan province, said three members of his family have been wounded in the attack.
“Two of them are at Emergency (hospital). It has cost me almost three million Afghanis. So far, no organization has come here to help us,” Rahman said.
“By this, they are trying to put pressure on the locals to evacuate them from the areas around the Bagram Airfield,” another district resident said.
Local officials said a team has been assigned to probe the issue.
“A team of security forces has been given the opportunity to assess the issue,” Parwan governor’s spokesman Wahid Shahkar said.
