Kabul terror attack: ISIS claims responsibility for attacks, releases identity of Kabul wedding hall bomber as Abu Asim Al-Pakistani

The violence has been surging across Afghanistan and in Kabul as the US and the Taliban negotiate a peace deal ahead of elections planned for September 28.

A day after a terror attack shook Kabul, Afghanistan, the Islamic State (ISIS) has now claimed the responsibility for the suicide bombing. The Islamic terror group has now issued a statement in Arabic that the attack was carried out by ISIS suicide bomber Abu Asim Al-Pakistani.

In one of the deadliest attacks in Afghanistan in the recent times, the suicide bomber Abu Asim Al-Pakistani blew himself at a wedding in a hall in the western part of the Kabul on Saturday killing at least 63 people and injuring 182 people.

The terrorist, Abu Asim Al-Pakistani, claimed that he targeted a gathering of “non-believers” or Mushrikeens.

The suicide bombing occurred on Saturday in western Kabul, in an area heavily populated area mostly resided by the Shia Hazara minority. The suicide bomber detonated the explosives near the stage where musicians were playing. More than 1,200 people had been invited to the event, with a mixed group of Shiites and Sunnis attending the wedding.

Two weeks ago, in a similar terror attack, the Taliban suicide bomber had killed 14 people and wounded 145 in western Kabul. The attack had raised questions about the Taliban’s commitment to peace despite expectations of a deal with the United States.

The terror attacks are being unleashed at a time the United States and Taliban are reportedly progressing in talks on an agreement centred on a US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan in exchange for a security guarantee from the Taliban.

The violence has been surging across Afghanistan and in Kabul as the US and the Taliban negotiate a peace deal ahead of elections planned for September 28.
