Triple blasts hit capital Kabul, leaving seven people wounded

A civilian was wounded after a magnetic bomb hit a car in PD3 of Kabul, around 10:30 AM, today, Tuesday, February, 02, a security official said.

Ferdows Faramarz, spokesperson for Kabul police, said that the wounded person has been taken to hospital.

This is the third blast that hits Kabul in a single day.

Earlier today at around 7:35 AM, a bomb targeted vehicle of security personnel in PD2 of Kabul. Mr. Faramarz confirmed that the blast left two security staffs wounded.

Four civilians were wounded in a separate blast which hit a car in PD4 of the capital, Kabul, this morning at around 8:30 AM, according to a security official.

No group claimed immediate responsibility for the attacks.

A surge in urban violence intensified ever since the peace pact was signed between the US and the Taliban on February 29, 2020.

Yesterday, two people, including a security force and a civilian, were killed after a mine hit a military vehicle in PD7 of Kabul.

Earlier on January 30, 14 Afghan soldiers lost their lives in a Taliban-claimed car bomb in Nangarhar province.

On January 17, unknown gunmen shot dead two female judges in Kabul. Though the Taliban deny involvement in latest wave of targeted killings, Afghan security and intelligence agencies blame the Taliban for surge of violence in urban centers including Kabul. Over last couple of months, at least 12 people, including journalists, women rights activists, government employees and NGO workers, have been shot dead in targeted killings which went unclaimed.

The Afghan security agencies blame the Taliban for recent wave of violence and blasts which remain unclaimed.

A joint statement issued by western diplomatic missions in Kabul on January 31, said that the Taliban bears responsibility for the majority of targeted violence.
