The Taliban group restarted its insurgency operations on Monday as the ‘Reduction in Violence’ period ended following the signing of a peace deal with the United States in Qatar on Saturday.

Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesperson to the Taliban told BBC that they will not target the U.S forces in Afghanistan, but their operations against Afghan forces will resume as the RIV week has ended.

This comes as a Taliban bombing explosion near a football ground in the eastern Khost province killed 3 and wounded 11 on Monday afternoon.

The security officials confirmed the incident took place at 16:20 local time in the Khwaja Rahimi village of Nadir Shah Kot district in the eastern Khost province.

The explosives were placed in a motorbike, an official said.

In another separate incident, Taliban militants have kidnapped 50 civilians in the Chak district of Maidan Wardak province, local authorities confirmed.

“The abducted civilians are the residents of Chak district and they have no link with the government”, Muzafaruddin Yamin, Maidan Wardak governor said.

According to Yamin, the Taliban have abducted civilians to later ask for an exchange with the Taliban prisoners.
