  • BREAKING: Explosions at police station in major city spark fears of multiple casualties

Two explosions occurred in different parts of the Afghan capital Kabul on Wednesday evening, TOLO News reported.

Their Operation Al Khandaq will target USA forces and "their intelligence agents" as well as their "internal supporters", a Taliban statement said on April 25.

Kabul police chief Gen. Daud Amin said another two policemen were wounded in the attack.

However, the NDS confirmed that both the HN and LeT planned the attacks in Police District#13 in Dashti Barchi, adding that there were clear indications of suicide bombers being involved in the operations.

After an easing of attacks in Kabul in February and March, Taliban and Daesh have stepped up assaults in the city in recent weeks.

Public Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majroh said a total of five people were killed and 16 wounded in the attacks, with the toll expected to rise.

"It was revenge for the perpetrators and organisers of that attack who used this centre (in Kabul) to plan and organise the attack (in Kunduz province)", the Taliban said in a statement. He did not have any immediate word on casualties. Twin suicide bombings claimed by IS last week killed at least 25 people, including nine journalists who had rushed to the scene of the first attack.

One of the bombings was claimed by ISIS and the other by the Taliban.

Hashim says more than 40 government forces retreated. "Their internal supporters will be dealt with as a secondary target", the Taliban said.

Although the government forces have recaptured Bilchiragh district in the northern Faryab province and have been fighting back to evict militants from the remaining Kohistan and Tala-o-Barfak districts, Afghans have doubted government's ability to root out militants and bring about lasting peace in the country. Provincial police spokesman Abdul Karim Yuresh mentioned the preventing continues to be underway and that authorities forces nonetheless maintain the compound.
