Herat, Afghanistan, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th Oct, 2020 ) :A car bomb Sunday targeting an Afghan police headquarters in the western province of Ghor killed at least 12 civilians and wounded more than 100, officials said.
The attack took place in Feroz Koh, the capital of Ghor, a province that has not seen much violence compared to some other regions of the conflict-wracked country.
Juma Gul Yakoobi, a Ghor health official, told AFP victims also included members of security forces.
"At present too many Afghans are dying. With the re-set, we expect that number to drop significantly," Khalilzad, who negotiated a February 29 deal with the Taliban to pull out US forces, wrote on Twitter.
The Taliban, however, charged American forces with violating that deal by carrying out air strikes in Helmand against their fighters.
"All contents of the US-Islamic Emirate agreement are unambiguous, but the opposite side has violated its commitments on numerous occasions, are engaging in provocative actions and bombing non-combat zones," the Taliban said in a statement on Sunday.
The US military dismissed the Taliban's accusation.
"U.S. airstrikes in Helmand and Farah have been and continue to be solely in defence of the ANDSF as they are being attacked by the Taliban," US military spokesman Colonel Sonny Leggett said on Twitter referring to Afghan government forces.
