Afghanistan is witnessing a massive surge in violence as foreign forces are withdrawing from the country.

Recently, United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has said civilian casualties in Afghanistan in the first half of 2021 reached record levels with over 1,659 people killed and 3,254 others wounded.
Earlier on Tuesday, multiple explosions and sporadic gunfire were heard in the city of Kabul, near the residence of acting Afghanistan acting Defense Minister General Bismillah Mohammadi.
According to Afghan media, the explosions was due to a car bomb attack. However, the Taliban had claimed responsibility for the attack later.
However, Afghanistan acting Defense Minister later informed that he and his family are safe following a "terrorist attack" on his residence in Kabul.
