31 security incidents reported in Afghanistan in May, watchdog says

KABUL, Afghanistan — At least 31 security incidents occurred across Afghanistan in May, resulting in 96 deaths and 81 injuries, according to a report by the Afghanistan Security Watch.

The report highlighted Kabul as having the highest number of incidents, with 14 recorded. Other provinces affected included Kandahar, Paktika, Logar, Bamiyan, Baghlan, Badakhshan, and Takhar.

The watchdog attributed most of the attacks to the Resistance Front, followed by the Freedom Front and Daesh Khorasan. The report also mentioned a drone attack targeting members of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), though it did not specify who was responsible for these strikes.

This report comes amid repeated claims by the Taliban that security in Afghanistan has improved since the collapse of the former government. However, according to the watchdog, incidents of criminal activities, including kidnappings and robberies, as well as other security breaches, have increased.
