Afghanistan: 4 killed and 5 injured, suicide bomber has targeted Taliban splinter group run by Mullah Rasoul
5 people were killed whereas 4 others were wounded in a suicide bombing that targeted Taliban splinter-group in Gereshk. The suicide car bomber targeted members of Taliban splinter group run by Mullah Rasoul in Gereshk district, Helmand, Afghanistan.
Earlier this month, a deadly suicide truck bomb attack in Kabul’s diplomatic quarter had killed nearly 90 people apart from wounding more than 300 hundreds. Afghanistan’s intelligence agency had blamed the Taliban-allied Haqqani Network with direct help from Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
The Taliban—currently in the midst of their annual “spring offensive”—denied they were involved, while strongly condemning the blast. The insurgent group rarely claims responsibility for attacks that kill large numbers of civilians.
