Summary

KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghans have survived bombings and suicide attacks and bear the psychological scars from decades of war and violence, but as a partial truce with the Taliban entered its fifth day Wednesday, many are hopeful it might usher in long-term peace.If successful, the partial truce — which began Friday — would lead to the signing of a long-awaited, broader U.S.-Taliban agreement that could finally see American troops withdraw from the country after 18 years of conflict — the longest American war."We, the people, have suffered for 40 years, and I and everyone else are happy if peace and cease-fire are declared," Hameedullah Azizi told NBC News in Kabul.Azizi, 26, says the daily violence has taken a huge toll on Kabul's residents, something he and many others hope could stop if the partial truce involving U.S. troops and Afghan forces on one side and the Taliban on the other becomes a permanent cease-fire.He said he is still dealing with the psychological trauma of a bomb blast in May.The explosion rocked a computer store where he worked, smashing the window glass.
