The Taliban fighters reportedly conducted operations in Kabul’s northern suburb-Police District 17, Khair Khana- eliminating a safe haven of the ISIS Khorasan branch.

Local residents have confirmed the shooting of light and heavy weapons in the area and have also reported two explosions.

Sources of the Taliban have also said that they have launched operations in PD17 to eliminate a hideout of the ISIS-K.

The operation has allegedly left the hideout destroyed and at least three killed.

The operation is conducted hours after a suicide bomber exploded his explosives in Eid Gah mosque where Taliban authorities and civilians had gathered for the prayer/mourning ceremony of the slain mother of Zabiullah Mujahid- spokesperson of the Taliban.

The explosion has reportedly left more than ten killed and over 20 more wounded.

No one has taken the responsibility for the explosion yet.

The operation in PD17 was purportedly conducted to target the suspects of the explosion but the Taliban have not said anything yet.
