At least eight Afghan security forces and four civilians were killed, as well as 50 civilians were injured in a car explosion in central Ghazni province on Sunday, government officials said.

The militant group claimed to be responsible for bombing cars near the National Security Directorate (NDS) compound in Ghazni town early in the morning.

“Dozens of NDS officers were killed or injured,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statement.

A spokeswoman for the Ghazni province government, Arif Noori has confirmed that eight members of the NDS and four civilians have been killed in an explosion, with more than 50 civilians injured.

“Most injured are rushed to the hospital,” he said.

It is still unclear whether the attack was committed by a daring bomber.

The explosion in the civilian area of ​​the city of Ghazni is the latest in the day-to-day attack of the Taliban, which currently controls almost half of Afghanistan.

The group also intensified attacks on Afghan troops despite efforts to achieve a peace deal to end the 18-year war.
