Iranian leader sends message of condolences to survivors of attacks in Afghanistan


Iran’s Deputy Ambassador to Afghanistan Hassan Mortazavi and an accompanying delegation on Saturday delivered the leader’s message to the families of victims of the recent attacks on Afghan territory.

A wave of bombing raids has swept through Afghanistan in recent days.

At least 31 worshipers were killed and more than 80 others injured in a bomb attack on a mosque in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif on Thursday. The terrorist group Daesh claimed responsibility for this attack.

On Tuesday, two blasts outside a school in a neighborhood of Kabul’s Hazara community killed at least 20 people and injured more than two dozen others.

The Hazara community has been the target of multiple large-scale kidnappings and killings across Afghanistan in the past.

In May last year, at least 85 people – mostly female students – were killed and around 300 injured when three bombs exploded near their school in Kabul’s Shiite-dominated Dasht-e-Barchi district.

Separately, at least four people were killed and 18 injured in an explosion in Kunduz, another northern Afghan city, on Friday. Bombings and other attacks in Afghanistan have decreased significantly since the Taliban took over the country last August when the United States and other foreign forces withdrew.

But multiple attacks are reported across the country every week, including some claimed by Daesh.
