Sporadic attacks in three provinces of Afghanistan claimed the lives of 5 people including police and army personnel and wounded two others.

The security officials in Balkh province said a civilian and an army soldier lost their lives in an attack by Taliban militants in Chahar Bolak district.

Meanwhile, the officials in Helmand Police Headquarters said unknown gunmen killed a policeman and wounded another one in attack in Bolan area of Lashkargah city.

Shaqaiq Shoresh, a spokesperson for Kapisa Police Headquarters said a roadside bomb explosion killed two policemen and wounded another policeman in this province.

The latest attacks take place amid ongoing efforts to end the ongoing violence in Afghanistan.

The U.S. and Taliban signed a peace deal in Qatari capital of Doha late last month after almost 18 months of negotiations aimed at finding a political solution to end the conflict in Afghanistan.

On the other hand, there are concerns that the ongoing violence in certain parts of the country could derail the peace process as the Taliban militants sporadically continue to their attacks in remote parts of the country.

The U.S. military and government officials have also expressed concerns regarding the sporadic attacks in remote parts of Afghanistan, warning that such could undermine the peace process.
