Local officials reported an explosion took place in Northern Takhar province earlier today, causing the injury of four people.
The explosion erupted early in the morning on Wednesday in “Taliqan” the provincial capital of Northern Takhar province.
Abdul Mubin Safi, the security commander of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in Takhar province confirmed the explosion and stated that a bomb was placed under a local administrative staff’s desk.
Safi said that four people have been severely injured, however, unconfirmed sources reported high causalities left behind from today’s bombing. So far no group has claimed the responsibility for the terror attack.
This happens as the security headquarters of Afghanistan’s de facto authorities came under attack two days ago in Badakhshan province, as a result of which the IEA top security commander for that province was killed. ISIS took the responsibility for the attack on the security headquarters of the Taliban.
With the return of the Taliban to power last year, the optimism for bringing sustainable peace in Afghanistan was quite high. Many believed that since the Taliban had taken control of the power, there was no significant insurgent group to fight or cause terror and chaos among the general public.
However, with each passing day, a lot is changing in the context of Afghanistan. The security situation has deteriorated over the last couple of weeks, with more terror attacks taking place in different parts of the country. The long-lasting peace people were dreaming of after the withdrawal of the American-led alliance turned into a nightmare.
Local civilians keep losing their near and dear ones in suicide attacks and bombings. The never-ending war and political turmoil in Afghanistan have taken everything away from the people leaving them in complete desperation and chaos.
