It seems like Afghanistan will never have peace. Since the beginning of the war in 2001, but even before, when the Taliban ruled the country, Afghanistan is continuously facing attacks, explosions, executions and many more things like these. The problem is that innocent civilians suffer and hundreds of thousands die each year.
Today, Kabul witnessed a series of attacks and many people died as a consequence. The attacks were separate and the impact was high. First, shootings and afterwards a bomb attack. According to some media outlets, up until this hour, two civilians had died in Kabul. There are many injured too.
The latest attacks targeted important people from central and regional administrations from the country but also Europeans and other foreigners present in Afghanistan. It has been said that a peace between the Taliban Movement and the Afghan authorities will bring stability in the country and will stop the attacks, but recently, these talks have been delayed and the outcome is unknown.
In the attack committed today, on the 23rd December 2020, an Afghan official has been targeted and subsequently killed. The targeted people is an Afghan member of an independent elections NGO, Mohammad Yousuf Rasheed. His dead has been confirmed by Kabul officials. The NGO name is Free and Fair Election Forum in Afghanistan.
Important to mention is how the attack has been conducted. The Taliban have a lot of experience, so the attackers waited until the official left his home and started to head towards his office. On his way to his workplace, he was shoot dead by unknown gunmen.
When referring to the bomb attack that happened later, a police car has been targeted. Those who planted the bomb used a sticky-bomb and planted it on a police car, which killed one police officer and wounded his colleagues.
Of course, the Taliban did not claimed the attack, but in the next couple of days, it will be more clear who is guilty. Besides the Taliban, ISIS also conduct frequent attacks in Kabul, so it is not clear right now who committed the attacks.
Now, with the election of Joe Biden, I am wondering what will happen to Kabul as long as many commentators argue that since Joe Biden has been elected the new President of the United States, the violence in Afghanistan has sky-rocketed, given that the Democrats were not happy with the peace deal between the Taliban and the Afghan authorities. Can it be just a weird coincidence?
