MOSCOW, April 16 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Embassy to Afghanistan was not shelled in a chain of terrorist attacks in Kabul, and no embassy staffers were injured, Russian Foreign Ministry sources said on Monday.
“A number of government buildings and diplomatic missions were shelled in Kabul on April 15 practically simultaneously,” the sources said. “Taliban assumed responsibility for the terrorist acts, announcing the start of ‘spring offensive’,” they said.
“Armed clashes between gunmen and Afghan law enforcement forces ended early on April 16,” they added. “The compound of the National Parliament of Afghanistan, situated in the same neighborhood with the Russian Embassy in Kabul was one of the targets of the attack,” the sources said.
“According to updated official data, eight representatives of Afghan national security forces were killed and over 40 were wounded as a result of the chain of terrorist attacks,” Foreign Ministry sources stressed. “There have been no reports about casualties among foreign nationals,” they added.
