KABUL: The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan has called on the Taliban to undertake a full investigation and provide answers concerning a recent attack on the UN’s compound in western Afghanistan, the mission said.
On Friday, armed militants attacked a main UN compound during heavy battles in Herat city, capital of western Herat province, killing one security guard and injuring several others.
The mission wrote on Twitter that perpetrators for “the attack that killed an Afghan guard needs to be held accountable.”
The city has been the scene of heavy fighting since early Thursday after the Taliban launched a massive attack and tried to overrun the Afghan city.
On Sunday, battles in the city resumed and entered its fourth day after reinforcements joined Afghan security forces and local Public Uprising Forces to prevent the Taliban from advancing.
