The Taliban claims to have detained the person responsible for plotting the recent deadly bombing in Afghanistan; The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has taken responsibility for the attack; Dozens more were wounded in the explosion.
Adding to the series of explosions to have taken place in recent weeks, ISIS claimed responsibility for an attack that occurred late this week, which killed at least a dozen people inside a mosque. According to reports, dozens more were injured in the attack – amounting to over 50 people. The act of terror occurred as Muslims worldwide continue to observe Ramadan.
The Taliban – the terror group governing Afghanistan – claims that it has defeated ISIS throughout the country but that it’s struggling to prevent isolated attacks. The Taliban overthrew the internationally-backed Afghani government in 2021 during the disastrous withdrawal of the United States from the war-torn country.
The suspect, Abdul Hamid Sangaryar, was allegedly involved in the planning of multiple attacks throughout Afghanistan.
Thursday’s explosion took place at the Seh Dokan Mosque in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif, located in the northern region of Afghanistan, not far from Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Mazar-i-Sharif is the country’s fourth-largest city.
