Seven soldiers were killed and six others wounded in two roadside bomb explosions in southern Kandahar and northwestern Badghis provinces, the Ministry of Defence said.
Four soldiers were killed by another similar attack in the Maqur district of Badghis, the ministry said in a statement, which gave no further details.
An eighth soldier and a civilian were killed when a remote-controlled motorcycle bomb exploded in the Sangin district of southern Helmand province, the governor’s spokesman, Omar Zwak, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The target was ANA soldiers. The civilian was killed because the bomb exploded near a crowd of people, he added. Three soldiers and as many civilians were wounded.
Elsewhere, three residents were killed and three others injured, including children and women, in a roadside bombing in central Uruzgan province.
The governor’s spokesman, Abdullah Himmat, said the incident took place on Tuesday afternoon in the Gizab district.
