More than 30 Taliban killed in Afghan air strikes: ministry
The Taliban claimed the strike had killed nearly two dozen civilians including women and children in the latest mass-casualty incident in Afghanistan that came even as peace talks were under way in Qatar.
The defence ministry said it was aware of the claim and would investigate.
Local hospital director Mohammad Naeem Mangal told AFP that three dead and three wounded civilians had been brought to the facility.
The attack came shortly before Ghani once again called for a humanitarian ceasefire "to protect our people, prevent violence and terrorist incidents and to achieve a dignified and lasting peace."
The insurgents have so far ignored such requests, though they have unilaterally called two short, separate truces this year in the run-up to peace talks, which opened a week ago in Doha.
Talks have progressed slowly so far, with the two sides still undecided about an agenda.
