The Afghan national defense and security forces have foiled three deadly explosions in Kabul city during separate operations, the officials said Monday.

According to the criminal Investigation Department (CID) officials, the Afghan forces discovered and defused three Improvised Explosive Devices planted in three different locations of the city to kill the innocent civilians.

The officials further added that the IEDs were discovered during the operations conducted in the 4th, 5th, and 9th police districts of the city.

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

This comes as the anti-government armed militant groups are attempting to carry out deadly attacks in the cities of the country, including capital Kabul.

The Afghan defense officials blame the Haqqani terrorist network for the majority of the deadly attacks, specifically the attacks which have been carried out in Kabul city.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Defense General Mohammad Radmanish has told VOA that the intelligence findings reveal Haqqani Network’s hands behind the attacks and not the ISIS terrorist group.

“Based on our intelligence, they [IS] do not have the ability to carry out such attacks in the capital or its suburbs,” he said.

This comes as the ISIS terrorist group has long been claiming responsibility for the attacks in capital Kabul which have left scores of people dead or wounded.
