At least 13 people died and others 30 were injured in a suicide attack this Saturday against an educational center in a neighborhood of the Hazara Shiite minority in western Accept, an action that occurs in the middle of peace talks. The attack took place around 4.30 p.m. on an access street to a educational center in Dash-e-Barchi, a neighborhood of the attacked Shiite minority Hazara in western Kabul, said the capital’s police spokesman, Firdaws Faramarz.

Disengagement from the Taliban

Zabihullah Mujahid.

Although the attack has not been claimed so far, everything seems to point to the jihadist group Islamic State (IS), which often claims this type of attack against the Shiite Hazara minority, whom it considers apostates.

This Kabul neighborhood has been the target of numerous attacks in the past, the last of which was major in May, when three terrorists attacked a maternity hospital where 16 people diedAmong them, according to the authorities, “two newborns, mothers of newborns and midwives, who were shot.”

This attack occurs when the levels of violence have been increasing in recent weeks in Afghanistan, despite the beginning in early September of the peace talks between representatives of Afghan government and the Taliban in Doha.

So only in the last week, 51 civilians died and 137 were injured in 356 Taliban attacks, suicide bombings and explosions, according to the Ministry of the Interior
