On Saturday, another bomb attack in Afghanistan’s capital city of Kabul killed at least one woman and injured three others in only one day.
A magnetic device was used to trigger the explosion in Kabul’s third district, only a day before the country’s Eid celebrations.
“A magnetic bomb in Kabul killed at least one woman and injured three more. Officers from the security force arrived on the scene and began an investigation “In a tweet, Afghan police spokesperson Khalid Zadran confirmed the news.
A succession of fatal explosions have struck Afghanistan in recent weeks, with one targeting a mosque in Kabul on Friday afternoon killing at least ten people and injuring many more.
Two explosions shook Afghanistan’s Mazar-i-Sharif in the Balkh province on Thursday, killing at least 9 people and injuring 13. One of the explosions took place near a school, while another struck a vehicle. The twin blasts were claimed by the Islamic State terrorist group (ISIS-K).
The succession of explosions and precarious security conditions, particularly for minorities, have received international attention, including from the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU), the United States (US), and others.
The Taliban, who are sanctioned by the United Nations for their terrorist operations, took control of Kabul in August of last year and established an interim administration led by Mohammad Hasan Akhund, a key member of the first Taliban cabinet. Since then, the country has been mired in a humanitarian catastrophe marked by economic hardship and food scarcity. .
