Hours after a deadly bombing outside a Kabul mosque, the Taliban retaliated and killed several insurgents during a raid on the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) affiliate’s hideout, the Taliban said Monday, according to the Associated Press.
On Sunday, five civilians were killed by a roadside bomb outside the Eid Gah mosque. Although, no claim of the attack was made, suspicion fell on ISIS. Bilal Karimi, a Taliban spokesperson, said three suspects were arrested.
Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid, who was at the mosque attending his mother’s memorial service, said that Taliban forces raided an ISIS operations center in the northern neighborhood of Khair Khana.
