A roadside improvised explosive device (IED) targeted an Afghan National Army (ANA) convoy in Sar-e-Pul on Saturday, October 10, killing ten security force personnel and three civilians. Three other people were wounded in the blast. Responsibility for the attack was not immediately claimed, and security officials are yet to comment on the incident.
Further attacks targeting security forces are to be anticipated over the near term.
Those in Sar-e-Pul are advised to monitor developments in their own particular area of operations through a range of multi-source intelligence advisories and should heed all instructions issued by local authorities or their home governments.
The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
