Human Rights Watch (HRW) issued a statement saying that Taliban forces that are advancing in Ghazni, Kandahar, and other Afghan provinces have summarily executed detained soldiers, police, and civilians with alleged ties to the Afghan government.
Residents, lawmakers in Parliament and military strategists on Wednesday raised questions about the deadly car bomb attack on the residence of acting Defense Minister Bismillah Mohammadi on Tuesday night in which at least eight people, including a woman, were killed and 20 more were wounded.
Military experts and residents in Kabul said that the complex attack on the house of the defense minister indicates the weakness of the country’s security agencies, calling it shameful and irresponsible.
