In recent months, Afghanistan has been rocked by shelling, rocket attacks and targeted assassinations.

Two Afghan police officers were killed when three separate “sticky bombs” exploded in Kabul, the latest violence to hit the Afghan capital in recent weeks.

Police officers were killed when the bomb attached to their vehicle exploded in a central Kabul neighborhood on Saturday, police spokesman Ferdaws Faramarz told reporters.

A civilian was also injured in the blast, he said.

Two security personnel were injured in another similar bomb attack targeting a second police vehicle in a neighborhood west of Kabul, Faramarz said.

He said a third bomb also exploded in the city but left no casualties.

In recent months, Kabul and several other provinces in Afghanistan have been rocked by deadly violence, including shelling, rocket attacks and targeted assassinations.

Several of these attacks, particularly in Kabul, have been claimed by the ISIL group (ISIS).

Journalists, politicians and rights activists are increasingly targeted as violence increases in the country.

Peace talks

The country’s brutal conflict continues as the Afghan government and the Taliban have been engaged in peace talks aimed at ending decades of war for more than two months.

The talks, which were launched in September in Qatar following a landmark US-Taliban deal reached in February, have been suspended and will resume on January 5.

The United States has agreed to withdraw all its troops from Afghanistan by May 2021 in exchange for security guarantees and a commitment by the Taliban to hold talks with the government in Kabul.

However, despite the talks, the Afghan capital has been hit by a deadly wave of violence.
