A woman has been arrested while planting a roadside mine (Improvised Explosive Device) in northern Faryab province of Afghanistan.

The 209th Shaheen Corps of the Afghan Military in the North said the woman was arrested from the vicinity of Qaisar district.

No further details have been given regarding the detained woman and it is yet not clear to which group the woman belong to.

The anti-government armed militant and terrorist groups often use Improvised Explosive Device as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces and government officials.

However, in majority of such attacks the ordinary civilians are targeted besides the roadside mines claim the lives of the militants.

A total of 10,453 civilian casualties – 3,438 people killed and 7,015 injured – were documented in the 2017 Annual Report released last week by the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and the UN Human Rights Office.

The report further added that the high number of casualties to the civilians were inflicted by suicide bombings and other attacks using improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

In the meantime, the Shaheen Corps said at least two militants were killed and five others were wounded during a clash with the security forces in Qaisar district.
