Kabul. Terrorist organization Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing during prayers at a Shia mosque in a province in southern Afghanistan. During the Friday prayers, 47 people were killed in a bomb blast, while many others were injured.

ISI took this responsibility by issuing a statement on social media late Friday night. It said two of its members shot dead security personnel stationed at the entrance of the Fatimiya Mosque in Kandahar province. After this, one ISI terrorist blew himself up at the entrance of the mosque while another exploded inside the mosque.

ISI news agency Amaq named the attackers Anas al-Khorasani and Abu Ali al-Baluchi in a statement. Both the attackers were citizens of Afghanistan. It is worth noting that a week earlier, a local organization affiliated with the Islamic State had exploded a bomb at a Shia mosque in the northern province, in which 46 people were killed.


What is the Islamic State attacking The Taliban, who recaptured after decades of war in Afghanistan, expressed a resolve to restore peace in the country. Both the Taliban and IS are groups of Sunni Muslims, but they are very different ideologically. Among them, ISI is quite a fanatic. They have fought against each other many times.
