No one has taken responsibility for the attack immediately. Organizations affiliated to the Islamic State of Afghanistan have conducted similar attacks before. More than two dozen mortars were fired last month in which eight common people died and 31 were injured.


This organization affiliated with IS is known as ‘IS in Khorasan province’. It claimed responsibility for the attacks in Kabul in recent months.
