The Taliban security officials in Kabul confirmed the explosion in Taimani Project, the capital’s fourth district, stating that many civilians were wounded.

The explosion, which took place in Kabul’s PD 4 around 6:00 p.m., was caused by a magnetic bomb embedded on a bicycle, according to Khalid Zadran, the spokesman for the Taliban police in Kabul.

The explosion targeted Sayed Mahmood Hashemi, Kabul Municipality’s Head of District 4.

A close source to the Head of 4th district of Kabul Municipality told Khaama Press that Sayed Mahmood Hashemi is unharmed; but some of his guards were injured.

Zadran said that the explosion injured a number of civilians, but he did not specify exact number.

Taliban security forces had arrived at the scene, according to Zadran, and were investigating the cause of the explosion.

No group or individual so far has claimed the responsibility for the explosion.

Despite the Taliban’s claims that security has been restored following their takeover of Afghanistan, some cities, including Kabul, have experienced explosions.

Mosques, training centers, and passenger vehicles have all been targeted in recent explosions, resulting in numerous fatalities.
