The Taliban has taken credit for a coordinated attack going on right now in Afghanistan.

There are multiple attacks in Kabul, Gardez City, Jalalabad and Logar province, an Afghan spokesman tells Al Jazeera.

There are reported attacks on the NATO headquarters, a Kabul hotel, Afghan parliament, German and Russian embassies, a house used by British diplomats, Jalalabad airport, an army base in Jalalabad, a Turkish base, Kabul Military Academy and more.

Kabul has seen at least 14 large explosions. Attackers are using suicide bombs, rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars.

There are no reported casualties yet.

The Taliban’s Zabihullah Mujahid tells Reuters these attacks are the beginning of a blood spring offensive and that they’ve been planned for months.

The Green Zone is an enclave in the war torn country that houses the NATO compound and several international embassies. The assailants are reported to be holed up in surrounding buildings.

Eyewitnesses say the attack started near Zanbaq Square in the heart of Kabul where the presidential palace, foreign ministry, and several foreign embassies are located.

Here is some video taken near the square a short time ago:

ABC News Australia reports several suicide attackers have taken over the new Kabul Star Hotel, which is reportedly on fire, and situated closely to a major American military base.

Kamal Faridi, the individual who uploaded the video, is tweeting on the attacks. He says there have been 26 bombings so far, and that this marks the beginning of a very bloody spring offensive by the Taliban.
