A motor bomb explosion and long-running gunfires near U.S military base in Bagram district of Parwan province on Wednesday morning, killed 2 civilians and injured 73 most of whom were civilians, MOI spokesperson confirmed.

The powerful explosion has totally destroyed a large clinic which was built by the Korean Development funds and was in active since 2016.

According to Nasrat Rahimi, spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior Affairs, 7 militants entered in to the clinic building after the explosion.

Taliban have taken the responsibility of the attack and have claimed that their militants have succeeded to enter in to the U.S military base in Bagram.

A Resolute Support Spokesperson told Khaama Press that the Taliban fighters who remained after an unsuccessful attempt to breach Bagram airfield were killed in a series of airstrikes this evening.

The fighters barricaded themselves inside the medical facility building they attacked early Wednesday morning, RS spokesperson said.

He also said that some coalition service members were evaluated for minor injuries following the initial attack, but were late released.

This comes as the fifth day of the ongoing negotiations for a political settlement between Taliban and U.S delegation is over and more likely it takes more time to reach a deal.

The major subjects of discussions between the U.S delegation and Taliban leaders are violence reduction, ceasefire and intra-Afghan talks.
