An operation resulted in the death of a network of Islamic State, also known as Daesh, militants responsible for the assault on the Pakistani embassy in Kabul, according to a Taliban-led Afghan government spokeswoman on Thursday.
Knowing their intended victim was the Pakistani envoy, the terrorist organisation admitted responsibility for the incident.
The TTA spokeswoman stated in a statement on Twitter on Thursday that operations were carried out in Kabul by Afghan security forces against a Daesh network that was responsible for the attacks on the Pakistani mission and a hotel where Chinese people were residing.
Five Chinese nationals were injured in the attack on December 12 and China requested that its citizens leave the country.
Zabihullah Mujahid claims that Afghan forces have conducted operations against terrorist-affiliated Daesh insurgents in the provinces of Nimroz and Kabul.
The hideout yielded small guns, hand grenades, mines, suicide vests, and explosives, and seven members of Daesh were detained. Additional individuals were detained for interrogation as well.
Concerns regarding the actions of Daesh in the nation’s capital and other regions have been rekindled by the operation in Kabul. Despite worldwide news regarding Daesh’s expanding activity, Taliban leaders typically minimise the threat the organisation poses in Afghanistan.
Nizamani was the attack’s intended victim, according to a statement from the Foreign Office that was made public last month, albeit he was unharmed.
The FO stated that it “strongly denounced” the attack, but noted that the embassy will carry on as usual and that no plans existed to remove ambassadors from Kabul. In order to formally denounce the incident, the Afghan chargé d’affaires was also called to appear before the foreign ministry.
To protect the safety and security of Pakistani diplomats and people in Afghanistan, Pakistan had requested that the Afghan government conduct thorough investigations into the attack as soon as possible, find the perpetrators and hold them accountable.
