‘Our Country Is Turning Into Afghanistan’, they say
Gunmen stormed a Sikh temple in the Afghan capital on June 18, lobbing at least one grenade and wounding two people, the interior ministry and witnesses said.
While the number of bombings has dropped across the country since the Taliban seized power in August, several fatal attacks have rocked the country in recent months.
A Taliban official says a bombing at a mosque and religious school in northern Afghanistan on Friday killed at least 33 people, including students of a religious school.
Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban's deputy culture and information minister, said the bombing in the town of Imam Saheb, in Kunduz Province, also wounded another 43 people, many of them students.
Since Taliban fighters seized control of Afghanistan last year after ousting the US-backed government, the number of bombings has fallen but the jihadist and Sunni ISIL has continued with attacks -- often against Shiite targets.
Earlier this week, at least six people were killed in twin blasts that hit a boys' school in a Shiite neighbourhood of Kabul.
It is disingenuous given how Turkey both legitimized & encouraged the Taliban in Afghanistan & has positioned itself as a hub for Russian sanctions evasion
