Grenade Explosion At An Islamic Seminary In East Afghanistan Wounds Eight People


(MENAFN- Khaama Press)

According to the Taliban's security officials, eight people were wounded on Saturday when unidentified assailants threw a hand grenade into a religious seminary in Nangarhar province, in eastern Afghanistan.

The grenade explosion targeted an Islamic religious school called Zunoorain Usman, in Nangarhar province's Rodat district, about 25 kilometers from Jalalabad city, the provincial capital.

The injured have been sent to the nearby hospital, according to the security officials. One of them reportedly has a critical health condition.

Although no one has been arrested in relation to this attack, according to security officials, investigations have been undertaken to identify those responsible.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Islamic State terrorists are present and active throughout the country, primarily in the east, and often target Taliban forces and religious minorities.

The attack on the religious school in the eastern region of Afghanistan came at a time when religious scholars from across the country assembled in Kabul for the Taliban's 3-day grand gathering which concluded today, Saturday, 2nd July.
