The Taliban has stepped-up their attacks following a week of reduced violence in late February that led to the signing of a peace deal between the group and the US.

However, following the peace deal, attacks have greatly increased and many Afghan experts have blamed Pakistan for supporting and sponsoring the Taliban insurgents to pressurize the Afghan government into submission.

As per Tolo News, the Taliban blamed the Afghan and foreign forces for conducting over fifty attacks on the insurgent group post the peace deal. “This is a result of the inattention of the leaders, which has resulted in people’s sons being killed,” said Mohamad Azam Afzali, member of the Takhar provincial council.
