On Saturday, a series of three explosions killed nearly three individuals including Taliban officials, and injured at least 20 in Afghanistan’s Jalalabad. The explosion that occurred in the capital of Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province was aimed at a Taliban vehicle. Local officials in Nangarhar informed local media that the roadside bomb exploded when a Taliban ranger struck it.

Reports asserted that Taliban officials were among the deceased while the injured were civilians. According to reports, a sticky bomb exploded in Kabul, injuring two people. The aim of the Kabul bomb is not yet clarified. However, the Jalalabad landmine blast was aimed at the Taliban officials.

The explosion follows at a time when war-torn Afghanistan is a major concern across the world following the abrupt takeover by the Taliban on August 15. Following the takeover, several attacks took place in the country, involving an operation carried out by the United States, which they regretted later.

On Friday, the Pentagon mentioned that its drone strike on August 29 was aimed at an Islamic State suicide bomber but many civilians were attacked. Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin, in a statement revealed that the drone strike had killed Mr. Ahmadi who worked for a non-profit organization named Nutrition and Education International.
