At least 10 militants were blown up by their own explosives as they were busy making an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in southeastern Ghazni province.

According to the security officials, the militants were busy making the IED inside a mosque in Andar district.

The officials further added that the explosives went off prematurely, leaving all 10 militants dead.

The anti-government armed militant groups have not commented regarding the report so far.

The Taliban insurgents and militants belonging to the other insurgent groups are frequently using Improvised Explosive Device (IED) as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces.

The IEDs are the main contributors to the casualties of the Afghan security forces but are also considered as a key factor in growing civilian casualties.

At least 600 civilians were killed and 1,343 others were wounded in the first quarter of 2016, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan said in its latest report.

UNAMA further added that consistent with 2015 trends, ground engagements caused the highest number of total civilian casualties, followed by improvised explosive devices (IEDs), complex and suicide attacks, as well as targeted killings.

According to UNAMA, actions by Anti-Government Elements caused at least 60 per cent of casualties while Pro-Government Forces caused at least 19 per cent.

  1. This is Allah punishment for the Pakistani financed terrorist who are not fighting face to face, but cowardly using IED’s for remote controlled bombs to kill Afghan people.

  2. “At least 10 militants were blown up by their own explosives”

    It’s hard to tell how many there were when you have to clean them off the floor with a mop.

    • I agree that religion should be something spiritual and peaceful, however the history showed that religion has been abused again and again to cause suffering and grief. 
      In 1095 the peaceful Christian crusaders started  killing Muslims for almost 200 years and went a the way to Holy Land to kill Muslims.  Not much later  in 1492 when the Christian removed the Moors from Spain they forced the Jews to convert to Christianity otherwise the Jews were killed or were forced to exile.
      The contemporary of Christian are also not very peaceful killing over 10 million people in WW I and over 24 million in WW II and killing also about 4 Million Jews.
      I am not claiming that Islam is a peaceful religion, but the peaceful Christian are responsible maybe for 1000 fold and more for killing and causing suffering for fellow Christians and people from other congregations.

  3. These animals choose the IED as their weapon of choice because they’re coward and don’t have to stick around to see the death of innocents. Death at their own hands is fitting, too bad it couldn’t have been more painful…
