The offer from the militants comes amid soaring violence that has threatened to derail US-backed efforts to bring Kabul and the Taliban to the negotiating table and seek an end to Afghanistan's nearly 19-year war.
Eradicating terror from Afghanistan remains the top priority, but all sides must now agree on methods.
Relatives say the victims were driving home from a picnic when their truck was hit in eastern Nangarhar province on Friday. Officials are ascertaining whether US or Afghan government targeted the passengers.
A US drone strike that left more than 30 farmers dead is another untold tragedy that rarely gets covered.
The cancellation of the agreement between the US government and the Taliban has nothing to do with the loss of life.
Afghanistan's Independence Day celebrations have been ripped apart by a series of attacks as Afghans face a concerted push from Daesh in the country.
At least 35 people were killed and 27 others wounded in western Afghanistan when the bus they were travelling in hit a roadside bomb, officials say, a day after the UN warned civilians were dying at "shocking" levels in the war-torn country.
Officials say a boy set off his explosives inside the house of a pro-Kabul militia commander in Nangarhar province, wounding 40.
Afghan officials said Daesh captured six villages controlled by Taliban in Khogyani and Shirzad districts of Afghanistan, and that fighting has not stopped.
Meanwhile, a director of a local TV station was kidnapped in the eastern Nangarhar province and a suspected US drone strike in the Paktika province killed a local government employee believed to have links to militants.

The attack, claimed by Daesh, took place in eastern Nangarhar province's Kama district where supporters of independent candidate Abdul Naser Mohmand had gathered to back his campaign in parliamentary elections scheduled for October 20.
