Conflicts in Mazar-e-Sharif: Afghanistan

Afghan strengths have been fighting aggressors to flush them out from a building close to the Indian department in the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif.

Blasts and gunfire have been heard close to the expanding on Monday.

Authorities said the assailants had unsuccessfully attempted to enter the office compound and were currently in an adjoining building. Security strengths have cordoned off the territory.

Indian missions have gone under assault in the past in Afghanistan.

Indian represetative to Afghanistan, Amar Sinha, told the Press Trust of India news organization that all department staff were protected and a clearing operation was under way.

Afghan authorities said they were “continuing mindfully to maintain a strategic distance from non military personnel losses”.

“Our freedom operation is going ahead close to the department,” Munir Farhad, a representative for the Balkh common senator, told the AFP news organization.

Police authorities in Mazar-e-Sharif said the shooters were equipped with RPGs (rocket impelled explosives), hand projectiles and light weapons.

Common police representative Sher Jan Durani told the AP news organization that the furnished men were shooting at the Afghan strengths from inside the building.

No gathering said it was behind the assault.

In 2008 and 2009, the international safe haven in Kabul was assaulted twice, with handfuls slaughtered.

In May 2014, vigorously equipped shooters assaulted the Indian office in Herat, while in August 2013 nine regular citizens kicked the bucket when the office in Jalalabad was focused on.

The late assault in Mazar-e-Sharif comes after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Kabul a month ago.
