ISIS-K Claims Responsibility For Bombings Targeting Taliban Vehicles Over The Weekend

By Katabella Roberts

ISIS-K has claimed responsibility for several bombings in Afghanistan over the weekend that targeted the Taliban and killed several people, while dozens more were injured.

In two statements, the terrorist group claimed three separate bomb attacks targeting three Taliban vehicles in Jalalabad, the capital of Nangarhar province, on Saturday and another bomb attack on Sunday on a Taliban vehicle.

Referring to the blasts, ISIS-K said, “More than 35 Taliban militia members were killed or wounded, in a series of explosions that took place.” The terrorist group did not comment on the death toll.

Reuters reported Saturday that at least three people were killed and about 20 were wounded in blasts in Jalalabad. The official death toll is still unclear.

Bilal Karimi, a Taliban spokesman, said Sunday’s bombing had killed one child and injured two people, one of which was a Taliban member, according to The Washington Post.

“We have started investigations into the incident to reach the culprits,” Karimi said.
