According to Zadran, two members of the force, including a woman, were killed and four others were injured in the clashes.
Earlier, Kabul Security Department spokesman Khalid Zadran said security forces were carrying out a clean-up operation when shots were fired from a house.
He said the residence was surrounded by Taliban forces, Tolo News reported. Residents said the clashes started around noon and both sides were using heavy and light weapons.
Notably, the security situation in Afghanistan has worsened since it came under Taliban control last August.
UN aid mission released a report.
This week there was another blast at the Kabul International Cricket Stadium during the Shapeza cricket tournament and according to media reports, several people were injured.
After the blast, a video is going viral on social media in which people are in panic and tried to take shelter in a safe place.
Attacks in Afghanistan have increased since the Taliban took control of the country.
Even as the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan released a report earlier this month outlining the human rights situation in Afghanistan in the 10 months since its takeover by the Taliban.
The report summarizes UNAMA’s findings regarding the protection of civilians, extrajudicial killings, torture and abuse, arbitrary arrest and detention, the rights of women and girls in Afghanistan, fundamental freedoms, and the status of places of detention.
The report also includes recommendations for both the actual authorities and the international community.
Despite an overall significant reduction in armed violence between mid-August 2021 and mid-June 2022, UNAMA recorded 2,106 civilian casualties.
According to the UN report, most of the civilian casualties were attributed to targeted attacks by the armed group.
Furthermore, the Taliban, which has been crying out for international recognition of its government once again hit the headlines when the US killed Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike in Kabul.
Ayman al-Zawahiri, one of the world’s most wanted terrorists and the mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attacks, was killed in a US drone strike on Saturday in the Afghan capital of Kabul.
