A column of smoke was captured in photos early Wednesday morning, thought to be near the US Embassy in Kabul's "exclusion zone".

A rocket exploded at the US Embassy in Afghanistan, reported the Associated Press, on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

President Trump warned on Wednesday that "an unprecedented" US military assault against the Taliban will continue.

There were no injuries reported.

"I'm frankly relieved because I think all of the signs were that the Taliban was not serious about an agreement that was acceptable to us", she said, adding that the Taliban was unlikely to make "guarantees" about keeping terrorists out of the country.

Like Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, Trump remembered the victims, first responders and US troops who have battled in Afghanistan, where the Taliban hosted al-Qaida leaders as they plotted 9/11.

The number of US troops peaked at around 100,000 but began to drop steadily after Bin Laden was killed in 2011.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Al Jazeera the U.S. would suffer the consequences of axing the talks.

"But US troop levels in Afghanistan are only around 14,000, a fraction of the peak of about 100,000 in 2010". However Khalilzad said final approval still rested with Trump.

Didn't Mr Khalilzad and Gen Miller know the implications of signing a partial ceasefire agreement that would have saved foreign forces from attacks but would have given the Afghan Taliban a carte blanche to go after the Afghan forces without the fear of being attacked by the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Afghanistan?

Rice said that the president's cancellation of the talks "was a good decision". The Taliban have never halted fighting during these talks. I want to look them in the eye.

"If anyone dares to strike our land, we will respond with the full measure of American power and the iron will of the American spirit and that spirit is unbreakable", Trump said at the Pentagon.

Violence in Afghanistan has escalated amid talks between the United States and the Taliban movement, which has in recent days conducted a number of terrorist attacks that have killed dozens of people in the war-torn country. Nor has the United States.

On Monday, Trump had already declared that "over the last four days, we have been hitting our Enemy harder than at any time in the last ten years!"
