ISIS claims responsibility for Kabul suicide bombing that killed 25 people

Another tragic bombing has happened, leaving dozens dead and many, many more injured.

After two suicide bombers struck in Kabul, ISIS was quick to take credit for attack.

Timed Attacks

This attack appears to have specifically targeted journalists.

According to reports, someone on a motorcycle detonated the first bomb.

Then, when reporters moved in to cover the story, a second bomber dressed as a journalist detonated the second bomb.

So far, 25 people have been reported dead, with close to 50 more being reported injured.

An Islamic State-affiliated website took credit for the attack, saying they wanted to take out “renegade” Afghan intelligence services.

Not long after this attack occurred, yet another suicide attack happened in Kandahar.

In that bombing, 11 children were confirmed killed and eight NATO soldiers were reportedly wounded.

Condemned Attacks

Not long after the attacks took place, President Ashraf Ghani released a statement condemning the attacks.

The United States Embassy also released a statement, calling them “savage bombings.”

The commander of NATO’s Resolute Support mission, General John Nicholson, stated, “if the enemies of Afghanistan think their cowardly actions will deter the commitment of the brave Afghan forces and our Resolute Support advisers, or the call by the Afghan people for peace, they are sorely mistaken.”

More Attacks

While these attacks were claimed by ISIS, several other attacks also took place on Monday.

Four Afghan policemen were ambushed by insurgents in the northern Balkh province.

Another Afghan officer was killed in the Nangarhar province as well as four civilians being wounded in an explosion.

It is becoming painfully clear, there is still a lot more work to do before we rid this planet of these radical maniacs.
