The explosion explosion took place near the entrance of the Eid Gah Mosque in Kabul, where a memorial service for the mother of Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid was being held.
“I heard the sound of an explosion near the Eid Gah Mosque followed by gun firing,” Abdullah, a nearby shopkeeper, told AFP news agency.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. However, since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in mid-August, ISIS has attacked them increasingly.
It’s noteworthy that ISIS still maintains a strong presence in the eastern province of Nangarhar and considers the Taliban an enemy.
The terrorist group has claimed several attacks, including killings in the provincial capital of Jalalabad.
