BOOM, there goes another bomb

Well, another attack has happened again, reports from CNN said Tuesday. A deadly explosion went off at the capital of Kabul in Afghanistan killing dozens and wounding over 300 others.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombings and believed to be targeting a security team that protects government officials.

The first attack consisted of planted bombs in a vehicle behind the targeted building, following a second attack of a gunman going inside.

Shortly after, the gunman died in battle where witnesses say they could hear gunfire after the explosions near the Afghan Defense Ministry and the presidential palace.

About a week ago, the Taliban said by all means they would declare war to stop any invaders or enemies getting in the way of their plans.

“Today’s attack shows the insurgents are unable to meet Afghan forces on the battlefield and must resort to these terrorist attacks,” the Commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, John W. Nicholson said, according to CNN.

The U.S Embassy in Kabul stated that Afghanistan deserves peace and security and that the civilians in this country should not be afraid to do daily activities like taking their children to school or simply heading to work.

Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani also disapproved of the attacks, saying the enemy defeated in battle against government forces.

The attacks also took place near a school district where many parents were running to save their children.

The Taliban is associated with many other Islamic groups including the anti-American group Al-Qaeda who executed the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

Weirdly enough, 9/11, the Brussels bombings, and now this attack in Kabul all took place on a Tuesday morning.

We can only hope that the next POTUS can help put an end to the mass killings happening in other countries.
