    At least 50 civilians have been killed in separate incidents, as the West-backed Afghan government forces and Taliban fighters have stepped up attacks since a peace deal between the armed group and the United States collapsed earlier this month.

    A US-backed air raid conducted by the Afghan security forces accidentally hit farmland in Nangarhar province killing about 30 civilians and injuring 40 others, while at least 20 people were killed in Zabul province in a suicide car bomb blast claimed by the Taliban group.

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — At least 40 civilians at a wedding party were killed Sunday night during a raid conducted by Afghan special forces and supported by U.S. airstrikes on Taliban hideouts in the southern Helmand province, Afghan officials said.
    The violence has further rattled Afghanistan which is facing an upsurge in violence after U.S.-Taliban peace talks to end America’s longest war collapsed earlier this month.
    Abdul Majed Akhund, deputy provincial councilman, said that the majority of the dead are women and children who were at a wedding ceremony that was taking place in Musa Qala district.
    Akhund said that 12 other civilians were wounded and are in the hospital in Lashkar Gah the capital of the province.
    There were conflicting reports on the numbers of killed and wounded from different sources as the area is under Taliban control.
    Attahullah Afghan, head of the provincial council, said there were two separate raids in different areas of Musa Qala. The first operation killed six foreign fighters, while the second raid “mistakenly” hit civilians, he said.
