MOSCOW (Sputnik) —According to the Khaama Press news agency, the incident took place in the Bagram district of northern the Baghlan province. A suicide bomber rammed a Vehicle-borne Improvised Explosive Device into the convoy.
"We can confirm that one coalition vehicle was struck by an IED [Improvised Explosive Device] this morning in the vicinity of Bagram," the Resolute Support mission said, as quoted by the news agency.
According to the media outlet, the Taliban militants claimed the responsibility for the attack, saying that it caused numerous casualties.
NATO transitioned from its military campaign against the Taliban insurgency to a non-combat operation in Afghanistan on December 31, 2014. The Taliban has since stepped up its activities across a number of Afghan provinces, killing civilians and security officials in regular attacks.
Formed in the 1990s, the Taliban seeks to enforce Sharia law in Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan. The group is known for numerous terrorist attacks against authorities and civilians in both countries.
