KABUL, 7 Nov – At least three people were killed and several others were injured in two explosions in the provincial capital of Nangarhar, Jalalabad, in eastern Afghanistan.
According to an eyewitness, on Sunday there were two explosions in the second district of Jalalabad, then shooting was heard. A medical source said that “three bodies were taken to hospital after the explosions.”
The Taliban * have not yet officially commented on the incident.
In early August, the Taliban stepped up their offensive against Afghan government forces, entered Kabul on August 15, and announced the next day that the war was over. The last two weeks of August from the airport of Kabul, which was under the protection of the US military, there was a mass evacuation of Western citizens and Afghans who collaborated with them. On the night of August 31, the US military left the Kabul airport, ending the nearly 20-year US military presence in Afghanistan. In early September, the composition of the interim government of Afghanistan was announced, headed by Mohammad Hasan Akhund, who served as foreign minister during the first Taliban * rule and has been under UN sanctions since 2001.
