KABUL, the National Security Council (NSC) said Saturday.

Javid Faisal, NSC spokesman, told a press conference at the Government Media Information Center (GMIC) that the Taliban increased their attacks three times compared the last two weeks.

He said 79 civilians were killed and 218 more wounded in the 3rd week of Ramadan. He said all terrorist groups in Afghanistan, including the Taliban and Daesh, were the same and were fighting against the people of Afghanistan.

The first two weeks of Ramadan saw the Taliban killing nearly 100 civilians and wounding more than 200 in attacks nationwide.
