Two blasts and 19 killed, IS massacred under Taliban rule; Reminded me that incident of 2017

Since the return of Taliban rule in Afghanistan, the terrorist organization Islamic State has started massacre at a more rapid pace. At least 19 people were killed and 50 others injured in two powerful explosions in the Afghan capital Kabul on Tuesday. The Taliban Health Ministry has given this information. In media reports, these attacks in Sardar Dawood Khan Hospital are being described as fidayeen attacks. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for this terrorist attack. This attack reminded the Islamic State of 2017 incident, in which the terrorist organization attacked the same hospital and killed 30 people.
Taliban Interior Ministry spokesman Qari Syed Khosti confirmed these minutes after the blast and said there were several casualties. However, he did not provide any further details. The Health Ministry has released the new numbers after getting the casualty figures from the hospitals. Earlier in the day, the media had reported that 15 people were killed and 34 others were injured in the blasts. But news agency AFP reported that so far 16 people have died in the attack and more than 50 have been injured.

Social media posts and media reports have termed the blasts in front of Sardar Mohammad Dawood Khan Hospital and Wazir Akbar Khan Hospital as 'fidayeen attacks'. Sources present at the spot said small arms firing was also heard from the blast site. Media reports earlier reported that there were explosions at two places including Wazir Akbar Khan Hospital. Later it was informed that both the blasts took place outside Dawood Hospital. An eyewitness said a suicide bombing took place at a 400-storied hospital near the Ministry of Public Health. The blast took place near Sardar Mohammad Dawood Khan Hospital.

Social media posts said the Taliban were trying to stop media workers from reporting casualties by pushing back. In Kabul's photos and videos, a plume of smoke is visible across the area. Sardar Dawood Khan Hospital has been targeted in the past as well. More than 30 people were killed and 50 others were injured in a similar attack in 2017, when gunmen posing as doctors attacked the hospital. The Islamic State group also claimed responsibility for that attack.
