Attacks are start of spring offensive: Afghan Taliban
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said that they had planned for the attacks for months.

Kabul: The Afghan Taliban said on Sunday that coordinated attacks in several provinces in Afghanistan, including multiple assaults on Western embassies and NATO headquarters in Kabul, were the start of an insurgent spring offensive.

"These attacks are the beginning of the spring offensive and we had planned them for months," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters.

In a text message to the reporters, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahed said, "Today, afternoon, at 1 pm, suicide bombings are happening by our Mujaheddeen at the ISAF headquarters, Parliament building, and other diplomatic offices in Kabul, and our enemies got many casualties. Our Mujaheddeen are equipped with small and heavy weapons and also suicide vests," Mujahed said, adding "this attack was planned very well. Mujaheddeen attacked Afghanistan Parliament compound and still the fighting is going on and we don't have casualties reports until now."
