Kabul, June 18: At least two civilians were killed and three guards were injured after three explosions in Gurdwara, Kabul, on Saturday, according to sources.

The Home Office confirmed the blast and said a group of armed groups had entered gurdwara in the Kart-e-Parwan area.

“Before entering, the enemy attacked the guards with grenades and set off a fire. Two Hindu compatriots injured in the attack were evacuated and taken to the hospital for treatment, the ministry said in a statement. “.

According to the statement, the car bomb was also detonated by armed groups before reaching the target.

“Fortunately, they didn’t reach their target and detonated a car bomb before they reached it.” Afghanistan: Pakistani army rocket attack on Kandahar’s “residential area” prior to Eid kills nine civilians and injures 50..

Meanwhile, witnesses told the Xinhua News Agency, “Around 6 am, I heard a big explosion that hit the temple gate. After the explosion, there were two more explosions inside the temple.”

Security forces blocked the area for precautionary measures, and some warning shots were also fired, he said.

A security source told the Xinhua News Agency that the first explosion killed two people.

A social media video showed smoke swirling from a two-story Gurdwara surrounded by blast walls.

The media and the general public are not allowed to enter the site and no one knows exactly what is happening on the premises.

Earlier that day, the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it was closely monitoring the situation.

I am deeply concerned about reports of the attack on the city’s sacred Gurdwara from Kabul. “

“We are closely monitoring the situation and are waiting for more details on the progress that is going on.”

Twenty worshipers were killed when Gurdwara was attacked in downtown Kabul in March 2020.

In recent months, the war-torn country has been hit by a series of terrorist attacks allegedly carried out by a terrorist group in the Islamic State (IS), which opposes the Taliban-led government.

A blast struck a mosque in northern Kunduz on Friday, killing one and injuring seven.
