The jihadist group Daesh on Wednesday evening claimed responsibility for attacks against three minibuses which left at least ten dead and fifteen injured, earlier in Mazar-i-Sharif, in northern Afghanistan. “Caliphate soldiers detonated two bombs placed on two buses (…) and a third bomb on a third bus,” Daesh said via its Telegram channels.

In Kabul, another bomb attack targeted a mosque on Wednesday evening, killing at least two people and injuring ten others, the Afghan Interior Ministry said. Kabul Emergency Hospital tweeted a toll of five killed and 22 injured. The ministry said the bomb was planted inside a fan in the mosque.

The number of attacks has declined in the country since the Taliban took power in August, but a series of deadly bomb attacks, in which dozens of people were killed, hit the country at the end of April, during the holy month of Ramadan.
