The National Directorate of Security (NDS) – Afghanistan’s intelligence agency says that the recent attack on Parliament building in Kabul was orchestrated in Peshawar city, provincial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
NDS spokesman Haseeb Sediqi said on Wednesday that the attack was carried out by Haqani terrorist network with the support from Pakistan’s spy agency, Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI). It left five people killed and 30 others wounded.
Sediqi added that Mawlawi Shireen the military commander of Haqani network masterminded the attack and Bilal who is an officer of the ISI provided financial and logistic support for it.
He further said that about 7.5 million Pakistani Rupees were spent on this attack.
The NDS spokesman added that this was third attack planned to target the Afghan parliament this year but the other two were foiled.
Monday’s attack on Afghan Parliament in Kabul was carried out by 7-8 attackers. One of the attackers driving a vehicle carried out a car bomb detonation in front of the parliament and the others armed with light and heavy weapons tried to enter the parliament but security forces prevented them.
They were all shot dead at the gate of the parliament.
