Blast Targets Taliban Patrol Team In Eastern Afghanistan: Report

Improvised explosive device was hidden in plastic container in downtown Jalalabad, local media report.

A Taliban patrol vehicle was targeted in a roadside bomb blast on Saturday in Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province, where the Daesh/ISIS terror group claimed similar deadly attacks last week, local media reported.
The incident took place during the morning rush hour near Pashtunistan Square in downtown Jalalabad, the provincial capital.
According to the state-run Bakhtar news agency, an employee of the Jalalabad Municipality got injured in the attack. The improvised explosive device was hidden in a plastic container.
However, local Azadi Radio reported that a Taliban security officer was killed and four civilians were injured in the blast.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
On Tuesday, the Daesh/ISIS terrorist group took credit for the back-to-back bomb blasts in the same city that claimed at least three lives last weekend.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahed, who is also the acting deputy information minister in the Taliban-appointed government, said on Tuesday the terrorist group poses no "major threat" and would soon be uprooted.
"The recent attacks by Daesh were their 'last attacks', they have no capacity to attack again," said Mujahed. -
