The Daesh* terrorist group has claimed responsibility for attacks that rocked eastern Afghanistan earlier this week, the group’s statement on Telegram says.
“More than 35 Taliban militia members were killed or wounded, in a series of explosions that took place,” the militant group said, referring to blasts on Saturday and Sunday.
The Taliban* has not yet commented on this statement.
Two Afghan civilians died as a result of an explosion at a bus station in the eastern city of Jalalabad in Nangarhar Province on Sunday morning, an eyewitness said. He added that the blast also injured one Taliban* militant.
On 18 September, at least three people died and another 18 were injured because of a car bomb exploding in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad in Nangarhar Province, the Shamshad News channel reported on Saturday, citing a source.
