Seven people were injured by a blast that struck a bus carrying Taliban administration personnel in Kabul, the Afghan capital, on Wednesday morning, according to Taliban security officials.
The Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development employees were traveling in a transport vehicle when it was targeted in an explosion in Kabul city’s police district 5, according to Taliban Kabul police spokesman Khalid Zadran.
The Taliban security official, Zadran, stated that the explosion in Kabul injured at least 7 people, who are said to be the administrative employees of the Taliban.
Khalid Zadran further stated that the explosion that injured at least 7 people on Wednesday, November 2, was caused by the detonation of a roadside mine.
No group or organization has so far claimed responsibility for the explosion in Kabul. However, the Khorasan branch of the ISIS terrorist group has claimed responsibility for other recent similar explosions.
Five medical staff working for Taliban security forces were slain last month in a shooting attack on a vehicle in western Afghanistan, which the Islamic State claimed responsibility for.
The recent incidents show that the Taliban’s assertions that they have maintained security in the country are futile, as the group itself suffered losses in the recent explosions and attacks.
