In an attack on Kabul, the Taliban killed six members of Daesh

In an overnight operation in the Afghan capital of Kabul, Taliban security forces killed six Daesh militants, according to a spokesperson for the governing group’s administration on Saturday.

According to spokesperson Qari Yusuf Ahmadi, the Daesh terrorists slain in the operation on their hideaway were involved in two significant attacks in recent weeks, one on a local mosque and the other on a tutoring school in which scores of female students were slaughtered.

“They were the assailants of both the Wazir Akbar Khan mosque and the Kaaj Institute,” Ahmadi claimed, adding that one member of the Taliban’s security unit was killed during the operation.

No organization has claimed responsibility for either incident.

The majority of the 53 victims of the September 30 explosion in the female portion of the Kaaj Institute education center were girls and young women.

On September 23, at least seven people were killed and more than forty were injured in an explosion outside a mosque in the strongly protected neighborhood of Wazir Akbar Khan, which was previously home to the “Green Zone” of embassies and foreign force bases.

Since taking power in 2021, the Taliban have reportedly prioritized safeguarding the nation following decades of conflict.

In recent months, a succession of explosions have rocked the capital and other major areas, and the United Nations has stated that security is worsening.

The Daesh affiliate in Afghanistan, called as Daesh Khorasan after the historical name of the province, are Taliban foes. In 2014, Daesh-aligned fighters first surfaced in eastern Afghanistan before expanding to other regions.
