With foreign troops set to officially leave Afghanistan territory by September 11, the Taliban continues to intensify its attacks on provincial capitals, districts, bases and checkpoints
This May, at least 624 people, including 302 civilians and 322 security forces, have been killed in a number of bomb blasts, target killings and violent encounters
The blasts took place in Kabul’s Dasht-e-Barchi area and the Shahr-e-Safa district in southern Zabul province. The United Nation Assistance Mission in Afghanistan reported that 573 civilians were killed in the first three months of 2021
The US has stated that it is leaving the country, but it has not publicly talked about any plans for the exit of the undisclosed 1,000 troops, the special forces, private contractors, etc.
