The peace deal was only signed Saturday in Doha between US State Department and Taliban representatives.

With the ink barely dry, the AFP reports Monday: "The Taliban said Monday they were resuming offensive operations against Afghan security forces, ending the partial truce that preceded the signing of a deal between the insurgents and Washington." 

"The reduction in violence... has ended now and our operations will continue as normal," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid announced.

Immediately on the heels of of the declaration Afghan national police reported three killed and 11 injured in a blast in the east of the country.
