10 Taiban Militants Blown up while Making IED in Ghazni

At least 10 militants were blown up by their own explosives as they were busy making an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Afghanistan’s Southeastern Ghazni province.

According to the security officials, the explosion took place as the militants were busy making the IED inside a their hideout in Andar district, leaving all 10 militants dead, Khaama Press reported.

The anti-government armed militant groups have not commented regarding the report so far.

The Taliban insurgents and militants belonging to the other insurgent groups are frequently using Improvised Explosive Device (IED) as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces.

The IEDs are the main contributors to the casualties of the Afghan security forces but are also considered as a key factor in growing civilian casualties.

At least 600 civilians were killed and 1,343 others were wounded in the first quarter of 2016, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan said in its latest report.

NAMA further added that similar to last year’s trends by militants, ground engagements caused the highest number of total civilian casualties, followed by improvised explosive devices (IEDs), complex and suicide attacks, as well as targeted killings.

According to UNAMA, actions by Anti-Government Elements caused at least 60 per cent of casualties while Pro-Government Forces caused at least 19 per cent.
