Explosion Near US Embassy and NATO HQ in Kabul

Diplomatic Security SitRep:02/24/2018

At least two people were killed and seven wounded Saturday in an attack in Afghanistan’s capital for which the Islamic State group claimed responsibility.

A suicide bomber struck in the diplomatic area of Kabul near NATO headquarters and the U.S. Embassy, Afghanistan Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish said, adding that the casualty count could rise.

Meanwhile, at least 18 soldiers died in an attack on a checkpoint in western Afghanistan. That attack was linked to Taliban insurgents, said Dawlat Waziri, a spokesman for the Defense Ministry. He said two other soldiers were wounded in the attack in the Bala Buluk district.

Qari Yusouf Ahmadi, a Taliban spokesman, claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement.

ISIS, in a statement posted Saturday by its Aamaq news agency, said the Kabul attack was carried out by a bomber with an explosive vest and targeted the gate of the headquarters of the Afghan intelligence service.

Kabul Bombing

The resurgent Taliban and the newer ISIS affiliate have been blamed for increased violence in Afghanistan after U.S. and NATO forces concluded combat missions in 2014 that began after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the U.S.

Last month, President Donald Trump issued a stinging statement deploring a Taliban-orchestrated suicide car bombing that killed at least 95 people and wounded 158 others in Kabul.

The latest incident comes shortly after the U.S. Embassy in the Balkan state of Montenegro was attacked Thursday by an individual armed with a hand grenade, who hurled the explosive at the compound before blowing himself up.

That attacker reportedly resented NATO and posted pro-Marxist memes online.

5 Killed in Attack on British Embassy Convoy

A suicide attack by Taliban on a foreign convoy on Kabul’s Jalalabad Road has left at least five people dead and 20 others wounded, according to Afghanistan’s Health Ministry.

General Ayoub Salangi, Afghanistan’s deputy interior minister, said the attacker was riding a motorcycle during Thursday’s attack. The Taliban has claimed responsibilty for attack, claiming many foreigners were killed.

The British embassy in Kabul confirmed to Al Jazeera that one of their vehicles were hit in the attack, adding that there were no diplomats in the vehicle, and that a number of its staff were being treated for injuries.

There was no immediate indication of the extent of any casualties.

The huge blast could be heard across Kabul and a plume of smoke rose high into the air above the attack site on the Jalalabad road, a main route that houses many foreign compounds and military facilities.

The bombing is the latest in a wave of attacks to hit Kabul as the majority of foreign combat troops withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of the year after 13 years of war against the Taliban and its allies.
