A motorbike bomb exploded near a mosque in Maimana city, Faryab provinces of Afghanistan, according to sources.
The explosion took place on Wednesday close to the Imam Abu Hanifa Mosque in Miamana capital city of Faryab in northern Afghanistan that at least six people, including three Taliban members, were injured in the explosion, said sources.
So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the explosion. However, the security situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated over the past couple of months, causing further challenges for the interim government in Kabul.
Since August 2021, armed groups linked to the Islamic State of Khorasan Province-Afghan branch gained power and carried out bombings, targeting civilian citizens, Taliban officials, ethnic minorities, and foreign nations.
Despite the ruling regime’s tremendous efforts, security in Afghanistan is still a major concern. Target killings, explosions, and suicide bombings routinely happen in Kabul and other cities.
