The last two attacks we have seen were indeed against Afghan government installations, if this is a trend, we don't know, this would be speculation, but it's very clear that the more and more the Afghan security forces are getting into the lead the more they are targeted by the insurgents.
The Afghan security forces are doing a great job pressuring the insurgency, we will continue to train them to assist and advise them, and we are confident that they will be very capable when taking over the full security of Afghanistan in the middle of this year.
Taliban suicide bombers have targeted a police building in the Afghan capital Kabul, sparking a gun battle with several other attackers. The raid started early this morning after a car bomb was set off at the gate of the traffic department in Kabul.

Three suicide bombers and a powerful car bomb took aim at the headquarters of the Kabul traffic department, followed by a clash between at least one insurgent and security forces, Afghanistan police said.
It is unclear whether there were any casualties in the attack, which happened just days after six suicide bombers targeted the Afghan spy agency.
The Taliban has claimed responsibility for today's attack.
At least three suicide bombers have launched an attack on an Afghanistan government building in Kabul and a gun battle with security forces is ongoing, Afghan police told Reuters.
