An attack on a local education department in the Afghan city of Jalalabad in eastern Nangarhar province took place at around 10 a.m. (05:30 GMT), on Monday leaving at least 10 civilians injured, the Pajhwok Afghan News agency reported citing the governor’s spokesman Attaullah Khogyani.
One of the attackers was reportedly killed by a blast of the explosive device he had detonated while three other assailants were shot by the security forces.
In a separate incident, 15 Afghan security personnel were killed by the radical Taliban movement in Kunduz province, the same agency reported. Moreover, another attack on Monday in the Chaparhar district of Nangarhar province reportedly claimed the lives of 14 civilians.
This attack, however, was not the last one in the string of incidents Monday. At about 1:00 p.m. local time (08:30 GMT) an explosion happened next to the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) in the Darulaman area of Kabul. According to the preliminary data, the blast occurred while employees were leaving the ministry's building, killing 12 and wounding 31 more.
Although no official date of the ceasefire had been announced, local press outlets indicated Tuesday as the first day of the truce.
