Taliban claim responsibility on attack on Afghanistan Parliament

Attack on Afghanistan Parliament

An immense blast shook the Afghan parliament in Kabul on Monday, activating turmoil in the smoke-filled building as legislators kept running for spread, live TV footage indicated.

The Taliban asserted obligation regarding the assault which happened as the Afghan president’s chosen one for the essential post of barrier pastor was to be presented in parliament.

“Several mujahideen have entered the parliament building, heavy fighting is on going,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid posted on Twitter

“The attack happened at a time when the defence minister was being introduced,” he added.

Authorities couldn’t promptly affirm whether Taliban contenders had ruptured the high-security parliament building and there were no quick reports on setbacks.

“We have heard reports of an explosion. We are heading to the scene,” Kabul police spokesman Ebadullah Karimi told AFP.

The extremists dispatched a countrywide hostile in late April, venturing up assaults on government and remote focuses in what is relied upon to be the bloodiest battling season in 10 years.

The activists as of late rebuked solicitations from senior Afghan pastors to stop assaults amid the fasting month of Ramadan even as a surge in brutality has sent non military personnel setbacks taking off.
