4 Civilians Killed, 10 Injured in Faryab Mortar Attack

FARYAB – At least four civilians were killed and further 10 were wounded in a mortar attack in northern Faryab province, local authorities confirmed Thursday.
Abdul Karim Yourish, a spokesperson for the provincial police, said the incident occurred at around 11 am after a mortar shell landed in a market in Shareen Tagab district of Faryab.
“The mortar was fired ‘by the Taliban’ to target the security forces, but all the victims are civilians who were at the market to shop,” Yourish said.
The fighting between Taliban and Afghan security forces has intensified as the intra-Afghan talks face a stalemate in Qatar.
No group or individual has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
