At least 12 people died and 32 are injured (but the toll is set to increase) in the attack on the Eidgah mosque: the attack signals the high tension between the terrorist group and the moderate part of the new Afghan government
The tug-of-war between Isis and the Taliban is getting tough.
A bomb exploded on Sunday in front of the Eidgha mosque, at the main stadium in Kabul, where the funeral ceremony for Zabiullah Mujahid’s mother was held, one of the best known faces of the new Taliban leadership.
According to a statement from their Ministry of the Interior, the dead would be at least two and the four injured, but the Al Jazeera correspondent, citing security sources, speaks of at least 12 dead and 32 wounded.
It seems that among the injured there are some important figures of the new government, their cars are parked in front of the hospital of the Italian humanitarian organization Emergency.
Local media and social networks point the finger at militants of Isis: three people have already been arrested.
At least a dozen Taliban fighters have lost their lives in recent weeks in several attacks against their convoys in the area of the city of Jalalabad, in the eastern regions not far from the border with Pakistan. But the clash destined to get worse and to condition the deep divisions in the Taliban camp.
In fact, the more moderate components would like to respect the agreements reached with the Americans in Doha, so that Afghanistan will not once again host the bases of jihadist extremism, as it did until two decades ago.
Ma the more radical currents still maintain close ties with Isis.
Three of his militants were recently publicly hanged in Jalalabad. And from Kabul the Taliban most interested in having relations with the international community announce their intention to intensify the repression against pan-Islamic terrorists.
