East Afghanistan has confirmed at least 18 people are dead after a car bombing, carried out by a suicide bomber who was targeting a provincial security forces convoy.
No group has immediately claimed responsibly for the attack. Although I would not be surprised if ISIS does not come forth to pridefully claim their wrongdoing.s….once again.
According to Fox News, ministry deputy spokesman Najib Danish reported that the bomber was targeting a group of guards who were on duty to provide security for U.S. forces in the Khost province on Saturday, near the area’s main bus station.
However, the unfortunate victims in the attack were mostly Afghan civilians.
Najib Danish, the ministry’s deputy spokesman, says the target was a group of guards providing security for U.S. forces in Khost province but most of the victims in Saturday’s attack were civilians. No group immediately claimed responsibility.
Coincidentally, this deadly attack falls on the first day of Ramadan, which is the Muslim Holy month. A time when ISIS has called for their followers to increase attacks and ordered to “attack them in their homes.” Has the Ramadan jihadi begun ?
This follows just days after the Manchester attack and the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt. This MUST end!
