On Monday morning, insurgents attacked a military academy in Kabul.

Saturday's blast, claimed by the Taliban, was the deadliest since 150 people were killed in a huge truck bomb explosion last May near the German embassy, which United States officials also blamed on the Haqqani network.

"I don't think we are prepared to talk right now", Trump said on Monday. One attacker was arrested by the army and two others detonated their suicide vests during the clashes.

Waziri confirmed that 11 soldiers were killed.

Afghanistan has witnessed several militant attacks in the past few days.

Afzal Aman, commander of the city's military garrison, confirmed the attack in the area of the Marshal Fahim military academy.

His thoughts and prayers are with the victims of Saturday's attacks, he said the enemies of Afghanistan killed indiscriminately unarmed civilians and soldiers, who equally bore the brunt of the insurgents' cruelty. It no longer harbors terrorism and the Taliban is receding.

In August, Trump concluded a months-long review of America's strategy to win the brutal war in Afghanistan, now entering its 17 year. "The Taliban's cruelty will not prevail", he said.

Kabul in recent weeks has been hit by several deadly assaults, including a massive suicide auto bombing in a crowded central area on January 27 that killed more than 100 people and was claimed by the Taliban. The ISIS has claimed the attack, but Afghanistan believes that it was the handiwork of the Taliban. A sixth suspect had fled the country, he said.

On Saturday, terrorists blew up an ambulance laden with explosives.

The military also classified, for the first time since 2009, the actual and authorized total troop numbers and attrition rate for the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces, or ANDSF.

He declined to comment directly on Trump's announcement. Trump's statement came after repeated attacks in Afghanistan, for which the Taliban claimed responsibility.

The Taliban reacted to Trump's announcement by saying they never wanted to talk to the United States anyway, but one senior member of the group said he suspected efforts would still be made to get negotiations going. A major source of revenue for the Taliban is the tax or tolls they charge local residents for safe passage or to move legal as well as illegal commodities to market.

The number of districts controlled or influenced by the Taliban rose to 54 in the October 2017 report from 33 in the October 2016 report.
