Around two thousand kilograms of explosives were seized during an operation by the Afghan forces in Kabul.
The Ministry of Interior (MoI) said the explosives were kept inside a house and the militants were apparently using them in terrorist attacks.
The Ministry further added that the operation was conducted in the vicinity of Char Asiab district of Kabul which resulted into the confiscation of the explosives.
The Taliban insurgents mostly use the explosives of Ammonium Nitrate type to manufacture Improvised Explosive Devices which are mainly used in roadside bombings.
Roadside bombings are considered as the main cause of the casualties of the security forces, government employees, and the ordinary civilians.
