Kabul: Taliban cleric Sheikh Rahimullah Haqqani was killed in an explosion in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Thursday, local media reported.

Tolo News, quoting the spokesman for the Islamic Emirate, Bilal Karimi, reported that Haqqani was killed in an explosion at his religious school in the capital.

Afghanistan has seen a series of explosions in recent weeks. The explosions occurred in a number of districts in the capital, Kabul, including Shindawali, Pul Sukhta and Sarkariz.

“At least three people were killed and seven others were injured in an explosion that occurred near Bol Al-Sakhta district in western Kabul on August 6,” local media reported, quoting the statement of PD6 commander in Kabul Mawlawi Zabihullah. .

On the other hand, the United Nations condemned the recent bombings in Afghanistan that killed and injured more than 120 people.

“Following the bombings announced by the Islamic State in Kabul in recent days that killed and injured more than 120 people, the UN family in Afghanistan urges more security for minorities so that Ashura can be celebrated without further attacks,” the UN mission For help (UNAMA) tweet.

The United States also condemned the attacks claimed by ISIS-K during Ashura, which targeted the Hazara and Shiite-majority areas of Kabul.

Since the Taliban regime took control of Afghanistan, bombings and attacks have become a regular affair with ongoing violations of human rights that include incessant killing of civilians, destruction of mosques and temples, assault on women, and fueling terror in the region.

Last month, a bomb exploded near Karti Parwan Gurudwara in Kabul, a month after an attack on the holy place by members of the Islamic State. Religious minorities in Afghanistan, including the Sikh community, have been targets of violence in Afghanistan.

The human rights situation has been exacerbated by an unprecedented nationwide economic, financial and humanitarian crisis.

At least 59 percent of the population now requires humanitarian assistance – an increase of 6 million people compared to the beginning of 2021, according to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan.
