Afghanistan Freedom Front (AFF) militant group on Thursday night claimed to have attacked Kabul Security Command using a hand grenade, killing two security forces and injuring a third one.
Reportedly, the attack took place around 6:00 mp, but official sources have not yet confirmed the incident and the casualties left from Thursday night’s attack.
The incident took place a day after Ahmad Massoud, the leader of the Afghanistan National Resistance Front (NRF) claimed to have carried out an operation on the educational center and outpost of the Taliban special unit in the Pul-e-Charkhi area of Kabul city.
On Wednesday, NRF announced the beginning of the group’s “guerrilla attacks”, which was welcomed by Afghanistan Freedom Front, and called for cooperation to carry out joint attacks against the Taliban security forces.
The Taliban have not yet reacted to NRF’s spring attacks, however, Qari Fasihuddin Fitrat, Taliban’s Chief of Staff in an interview with Afghan state TV said there will be no armed resistance by the former military and exiled Afghan leaders against the Taliban.
Taliban Chief of Staff described the exiled Afghan leaders’ claims as “boastful” and threatened them with military repression.
Since the return of the Taliban to power, security remains a major challenge for the ruling regime. It is reported that the Islamic State Khorasan (IS-K) militants have intensified their attacks in Kabul, Mazar-e-Sharif, and other parts of Afghanistan.
IS-K insurgents have been behind a series of brutal terrorist attacks over the past couple of months including the attack on the Russian Embassy, the Pakistani Diplomatic Mission, a Chinese-run Hotel and educational institutions in the heart of Kabul, which resulted in the death and injury of scores of innocent civilians.
