KABUL: At least ten security incidents took place across Afghanistan round-the-clock on Sunday, according to Afghan Peace Watch (APW).
Several armed clashes, assassinations, cross-border battles and an airstrike took place in Kabul, Nangarhar, Khost, Herat, Kandahar, Kapisa, Panjsher and Badakhshan provinces.
Pakistan air forces carried out an airstrike on areas in the Gurbazo district of Khost province; there is no count of casualties. This is the second airstrike carried out by Pakistani jets in Khost.

Meanwhile, border tension erupted between the Taliban and Iran border guards in the Islam Qala border crossing in Herat province; at least five Iranian guards were arrested after crossing into Afghanistan, APW reports. 
Elsewhere, the Taliban shot and injured a doctor in Kabul and gunned down a teenager at a security checkpoint in Nangarhar province.
Another civilian was shot dead by the Taliban in front of his family in Panjsher province on Saturday night, APW reported.
On the other hand, a Taliban soldier was killed in a guerilla attack by resistance forces in the Dand district of Kandahar province on Saturday night. Khpelwak Resistance forces claimed responsibility for the attack.
