The security reports and number of incidents happening all around Afghanistan indicate an increase in violence, where more civilians have been targeted in the recent days.

A passenger mini-bus was targeted with an IED explosion on Thursday night in PD6 of Kabul killing at least 4 civilians, police said.

According to the police, the incident happened at around 7:00 PM near Abdul Ali Mazari square in PD6 of Kabul, which killed 4 and injured 5 civilians.

Earlier today, another IED explosion, targeting a civilian passenger mini-bus killed 4 civilians and injured another 4 in PD6 of Kabul city.

This incident happened around 1:45 PM on Char Qala main road.

No individual or groups have so far claimed the responsibility for these attacks.

This comes as two nights ago, a win back-to-back explosion targeting two civilian passenger busses in PD3 of Kabul, killed 10 civilians and injured another 12.

The United Nations in Kabul expressed its concerns about the civilian casualties and called on both parties to reduce violence and do more not to harm the general public and civilians.

On the other hand, the members of the Afghanistan negotiating team have arrived in Doha to restart table discussions with the Taliban members.

Many experts and politicians in Afghanistan believe that the peace efforts seem to have slowed down because the Taliban do not show a real intention towards dialogue.
