ISIS claims responsibility for deadly suicide attack on mosque in southern Afghanistan — RT World News

Islamic State terrorist group says Friday’s suicide bombing attack on a Shia mosque in southern Afghanistan that killed 47 people and left dozens wounded was carried out by its members.

In a statement distributed by Amaq’s news agency on social media, Islamic State (formerly ISIS), claimed that the Fatimiya Mosque was the victim of the terrorist attack.

It also included names of two suicide bombers who claimed to have first killed and wounded the security guards on the entryway to the compound.

It was then that one attacker set off explosives at the mosque entrance and another attacked the building. also available

The attack is IS’ second largest since mid-August, when the Taliban gained control of Afghanistan. This was in the wake of the US withdrawing troops. A terrorist group in Kunduz attacked and killed 46 civilians, injuring another 143.

ISIS Khorasan Province (ISIS Khorasan Province), the Afghan branch, of Islamic State was previously active only in the eastern part of Afghanistan. But these latest bombings suggest that the group has expanded its operations despite Taliban promises to restore security and peace in the country.

The attack in Kandahar is presumed to be especially painful for the Taliban as the province is seen as the group’s spiritual heartland.

ISIS-K was behind the suicide bombing outside Kabul’s airport on August 26 during the chaotic evacuation of the US and its allies from Afghanistan. A massive explosion followed by gunfire resulted in the deaths of 13 US soldiers, and more than 160 Afghan civilians.

US forces responded by airstrikes on IS targets in eastern Nangarhar Province, and with a drone strike at Kabul, which was intended to hit a terrorist but ended up killing 10 civilians seven of them children. also available
