On Tuesday, an explosion rocked Taloqan, the capital city of Takhar province, resulting in injuries sustained at least two people.
Provincial security officials confirmed the incident. The blast unfolded within the third security district of Taloqan, as said in an official statement by the provincial security officials.
Reportedly, the explosion was triggered by an explosive device concealed within a vehicle, causing injuries to two people.
The investigation’s findings suggest that the explosion was rooted in a personal conflict; however, no individual or group has taken responsibility for the incident.
This incident followed closely on the heels of another explosion in Khost province two days earlier, resulting in the loss of three lives and seven others wounded due to its significant impact.
The victims comprised both Waziristan refugees and Khost residents, illustrating the indiscriminate nature of the incident.
Remarkably, this incident unfolded during the second anniversary of the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Since the Taliban’s takeover of power on August 15, 2023, the country has witnessed a series of explosions organized by various militant factions, including Daesh.
These attacks have targeted various entities, including Taliban security forces, foreign nationals, and innocent civilians.
In response to these security challenges, the Taliban leadership has pledged to bolster security measures nationwide.
