Alwaght- At least 20 people were killed and almost 27 others were wounded after ISIS Takfiri terrorists launched an attack on Afghanistan’s capital Kabul on Thursday evening.
The attack took place on Thursday night in the eastern part of the Afghan capital where dozens of security officers had congregated to protect a demonstration of shopkeepers that had been held earlier in the day.
The wounded had been brought to city hospitals after the blast in an area of the city not far from the US Embassy and other foreign missions.
Police officers at the scene said the bomber had been wearing police or army uniform and had approached a group of security personnel, but there was no official confirmation.
ISIS Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the brutal attack, saying it had killed or injured some 80 Afghan police and security people.
The attack happened days after a suicide bomber killed at least 41 people and wounded more than 80 at a Shi'ite cultural centre in Kabul, underlining the precarious security situation in the Afghan capital.
That attack was claimed by Isis, which has claimed responsibility for a number of similar attacks in Afghanistan over the past two years.
The country is still suffering from insecurity and violence years after the US and its allies invaded the country in 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror.
In recent months, ISIS terrorists, after suffering devastating blows in Iraq and Syria, have now relocated to Afghanistan through alliances with local terror networks.
