The Taliban security authorities said that an explosion that took place at a mosque in Kabul, the Afghan capital, resulted in the injuries of 7 people.

The spokesperson of the Taliban police chief office in Kabul, Khalid Zadran, said that the explosion took place at around 3 o’clock in the afternoon on Friday, October 28, in the Sheikh Mohammad Rohani Mosque.

The explosion took place in Kabul city’s 5th police district as worshippers gathered at the mosque for Friday prayer and dhikr, according to Taliban security official, Zadran.

“Explosive materials were placed inside the mosque, and it exploded after the Friday prayer,” Zadran said.

While the Taliban officials stated that the explosion injured 7 people, local sources in Kabul reported that at least 10 people were injured as a result of the detonation of the explosives at the mosque.

This explosion has not yet been attributed to any specific person or organization. The deadliest attacks, however, in Kabul, Kunduz, Balkh, Kandahar, Herat, and Nangarhar provinces of Afghanistan, have been claimed by the Khorasan branch of ISIS.

The ISIS attacks in Afghanistan have long targeted worshipping places, schools, and other public places where people congregate.

Even though the Taliban has been in power for more than 14 months, despite their officials’ repeated promises to ensure general security, various regions in Afghanistan have been the scene of fatal attacks.
