The Afghan Intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS), says the findings of the directorate indicate that the notorious Haqqan terrorist network was involved behind today’s coordinated attacks in Kabul city.

NDS in a statement said the attacks were planned with the support of Lashkar-e-Taiba militants group.

This comes as the ISIS Khurasan had earlier claimed that the attack in the Police District#13 in Dashti Barchi was carried out by the suicide bombers of the group.

The Minister of Interior Wais Ahmad Barmak had earlier said that the attack in Police District#13 in Dasht Barchi area has ended and all assailants were shot dead.

He said at least two attackers were involved in the attack in Police District#13 who had taken position inside a building and at least two policemen have lost their lives in the attack.

The interior minister promised that a thorough investigation will be launched regarding the deadly attacks in Kabul city today as he admitted that militants are carrying out attacks with different tactics as compared to previous years.
