In Afghanistan, Iran condemns lethal terrorist attacks

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi on Friday condemned dangerous terrorist attacks in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul and Kandahar city.

Mousavi sympathized with the Afghan government and nation, especially the individuals and their families of sufferers and strongly condemned such “acts of aggression and inhumane methods”, in accordance with the Foreign Ministry’s official website.

A minimum of eight peoples were killed off after a bomb detonated near university premises in Afghanistan’s capital on Friday, officials stated.

Wahidullah Mayar, the Health Ministry spokesman, wrote on Twitter that another 33 people were seriously injured in Friday’s explosion.

Statements claimed the blast occurred near Kabul University’s southern entrance.

There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

The early morning explosion also set two vehicles ablaze, even though it was not clear in case the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber or a remotely detonated bomb, in accordance with Kabul police spokesman Ferdous Faramarz.

The attack came a day after eleven people were killed off and scores much more injured after the Taliban assaulted a police headquarters in southern Afghanistan’s Kandahar city.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi on Thursday stated the afternoon attack in Afghanistan’s second-largest city started with a car bomb and then observed gunmen storm the police compound.

Baheer Ahmadi, the Kandahar governor’s spokesman, claimed in an opinion that 11 people were killed off in the attack, as well as nine civilians and two police officers, while another 89 – including women and children – were injured.

Two Taliban attackers blew themselves up and six others were shot dead by the security forces, officials claimed

Kandahar is the former seat of the Taliban, who ruled Afghanistan from 1996 until their removal by a US-led coalition in 2001. Since then, Taliban militants have been fighting US and allied forces, demanding the departure of all foreign troops from Afghan soil.
