An explosion targeted the vehicle of Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), the state-run utility firm, in northern Parwan province of Afghanistan.

According to a statement released by DABS, the incident took place in Golghondi area of Parwan province earlier today.

The statement further added that the explosion partially damaged the vehicle but did not inflict casualties on DABS personnel and engineers.

This comes as clashes damaged two more electricity transmission towers in northern parts of Afghanistan, days after the militants destroyed two transmission towers in capital Kabul.

DABS in a statement said the 262 transmission tower was damaged due to clashes 72km away from Pul-e Khumri city, the provincial capital of Baghlan.

The statement further added that another transmission tower, Tower#265, was destroyed in clashes 25.5 away from Pul-e Khumri city, cutting the supply of electricity supply from Tajikistan.

However, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat said the technical workers of the firm brought changes in the system and connected the electricity supply network with supply source being imported from Uzbekistan.
