A man was arrested in Kabul’s capital city of Afghanistan with six magnetic Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), according to the Ministry of National Defense on Monday.
The Ministry said that the apprehended capture was made possible based on the intelligence gathered by the 313 Central Corps of the defence ministry.
“A man was arrested along with six 6-ring stick mines and two rifles in the Dehamzang area of Kabul,” the Ministry tweeted, adding that the suspect will be handed over to the relevant authorities after investigation.
The arrest came two days after an attack on Friday late evening in Kabul that killed three and wounded four members of the Taliban, the Afghan Freedom Front, claimed in a news release.
However, the Islamic Emirate confirmed the explosion without causalities and said that only two people were wounded.
Recently, the attack has been increased on the Taliban interim government by Islamic State Khorasan and other militant groups in the country.
Within a week, three explosions occurred, one in Kabul, claiming three lives, one in Balkh’s governor’s office, which led to his death and another in Tebyan Cultural Centre, killing more than three and other 30 journalists.
Since the Taliban retook control of power in Afghanistan, security has been a significant challenge in front of them amid a humanitarian dire in the country.
