In the last few weeks, Afghanistan has been plagued by a succession of devastating bombs. Two explosions rocked Afghan Mazar-i-Sharif, in the province of Balkh, on Thursday, killing at least 9 people and injuring 13.
One of the explosions occurred near an educational center, while another struck a vehicle. The terrorist organization Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the twin explosives.
In another instance, an explosion targeted a mosque in Afghanistan’s Mazar-i-Sharif, killing at least 40 people and injuring over 100, Tolo News reported, citing local health authorities.
Yesterday, the walls of a mosque in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, shook due to a powerful explosion on Friday, which killed at least 10 people and wounded 20, reported a Taliban spokesperson.
Hundreds gathered to pray on the last Friday of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The Khalifa Aga Gul Jan Mosque was packed, a resident mentioned, expressing worry that the casualty toll could increase.
