A huge explosion in Nangarhar province, the east of Afghanistan, killed two people and wounded at least 28 others present at the explosion site, according to the local sources.

The explosion, as per the sources, took place in the Ghani Khail district of Nangrahar province around 9:30 today, June 20th.

A Taliban senior official for the Ghani Khail district, Mawlawi SediqUllah confirmed the explosion and stated that the wounded were taken to a nearby hospital.

The explosion targeted the Head of the Ghani Khail hospital, but no group has yet claimed the responsibility for the explosion which killed and wounded at least 30 people in eastern Afghanistan.

The explosion comes at a time when the Sikh temple in Kabul was targeted and attacked by the ISKP also known as the Daesh-Khorasan, killing at least two people.

In addition to that, Kabul has lost 4 people to two separate explosions which are reported to have injured at least 10 other people.

Despite the Taliban’s assertions that security has been maintained since their control of Afghanistan, explosions have occurred in certain places, including Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.

The recent explosions have targeted mosques, training centers, and passenger vehicles, government officials and even the Taliban forces, resulting in multiple casualties.
