Kabul - XINHUA

In the conflict-ridden Afghanistan often the non-combatants bear the brunt of the endemic war as over two dozen civilians have lost their lives in the conflict-related incidents over the past two days. In the latest waves of violent incident, a roadside bomb struck a car in the western Farah province on Tuesday, killing four civilians, all members of the same family. \"A father and three of his children were killed Tuesday morning and the mother of the family was seriously wounded when a vehicle ran over a roadside bomb in Farah,\" the provincial government spokesman Abdul Rahman Zhwandy told Xinhua. \"The bombing happened in Lash Wa Juwayn district at around 07: 00 a.m. local time Tuesday while the ill-fated family was traveling in a car from district center to a nearby village,\" the spokesman added. He also blamed the Taliban militants for placing the explosive device on a road in the area, saying the militants by organizing subversive activities want to terrorize the people. Hours later in a similar incident six civilians lost their lives as a roadside bomb went off in the southern Helmand province 555 km south of Kabul on Tuesday, spokesman for provincial administration Omar Zawak said. \"A mine planted by Taliban militants in Sangin district of Helmand province went off at around noon today killing six civilians including three women and three men,\" Zawak told Xinhua. Ten more civilians, mostly school children, were killed as a suicide bomber blew himself up in Samkanai district of Paktia province on Monday and injured 17 others, mostly civilians, provincial police chief Zalmai Oryakhil said. Moreover, seven members of an Afghan family were killed Monday morning when their car was hit by a roadside bomb in the country\'s eastern province of Laghman, said the provincial government. \"Four women, two children and a man were martyred as their car ran over a roadside bomb in Hakim Abad area of the Laghman province at around 07:00 a.m. local time Monday,\" the provincial government said in a statement. Afghan civilians have suffered greatly in the protracted conflict as the Taliban militants fighting the government and NATO- led troops are largely relying on suicide and roadside bombings but the deadly homemade weapon does not spare the civilians. The conflict-related violence has killed 125 Afghan civilians and injured 287 others within the last two weeks, a 24-percent increase in total civilian casualties against the same period in 2012, the UN mission in Afghanistan said in a statement on Monday, adding Taliban and other anti-government elements were responsible for 84 percent of all civilian casualties during the past two-week period.
