The detonations targeted the Taliban and caused more than 25 civilian casualties, including women and children, Khaama Press news agency reported.

Witnesses said that several fighters from the Taliban movement were taken to hospital after being injured in the attacks in Nangarhar, on the border with Pakistan, where the Taliban is targeted by the ISIS-K after conquering the Central Asian country.

Bilal Karimi, a deputy to Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, confirmed to the Afghan news channel TOLO News that the explosion hit a vehicle of radical Islamic fundamentalists in Jalalabad.

The attack came after an explosion in Kabul on Saturday and two other detonations against Taliban vehicles, also in Jalalabad, as a result of which two people were killed and 20 were injured.

Nangarhar is the heart of the ISIS-K group, which claimed responsibility for two attacks at Kabul’s international airport in August, resulting in 183 deaths and more than 150 injured, according to the Al Jazeera.
