IS claims Sikh temple attack in Kabul
Following the attack on a Sikh temple in Kabul IS claims the attack despite all efforts by the Taliban to obliterate the group.
The Islamic State (IS) claimed Sunday responsibility for the attack against a Sikh temple in Afghanistan earlier this week. The attack left two dead and around seven injured. IS has committed a series of attacks across Afghanistan in hopes of creating further rifts amongst the ranks of citizens.
Gunmen stormed a Sikh temple in Kabul on Saturday, hurling at least one grenade, killing two and injuring seven others, according to the interior ministry and witnesses.
Since reclaiming power in the country in August 2021, the Taliban movement has been battling a local chapter of IS, which is believed to be responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks and bomb explosions in Afghanistan.
The presence of IS in the country is minimal, and the movement has been working to eliminate the group, according to the Taliban.
