Islamic State (ISIS) fighters claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s car bomb attack in northeastern Badakhshan province, which killed the Taliban deputy governor and his driver.

On Tuesday, ISIS wrote on Telegram, saying its fighters succeeded to detonate a bomb targeting Taliban deputy governor Mawlavi Nisar Ahmad Ahamdi, which also left six others injured, according to provincial officials.

Mazudeen Ahmadi, the head of the Information and Culture Department of the Taliban said the deputy governor’s vehicle was attacked while it was on its way to a court in Faizabad, the provincial capital of Badakhshan province.

The injured people have been transferred to the provincial hospital for treatment, sources said.

Since the return of the Taliban to power in August 2021, ISIS has been a major threat to the de facto authorities of Afghanistan. The insurgent fighters have been behind several brutal attacks targeting the Russian Embassy, Pakistan’s Diplomatic Mission and a Chinese-run hotel in the heart of Kabul over the past nearly two years.

As a result of the terror attack on the foreign institutions in Kabul, scores of foreign and innocent locals were killed in injured.
