KABUL/ ISLAMABAD: Once again, another Shia mosque started bleeding with Shia Muslims in Afghanistan when Daesh (included ISIS/ ISIL/ TALIBAN/ AL-QAEDA/ IS/ TTP/ TTA/ LeJ/ SSP/ JeM/ and dozens other anti-Shia organizations and groups) pressed a device of extraordinary powerful explosive like they have been pressing during last over thirty years as PMI and Messenger have been reported but neither any so-called, educated, civilized and modern country (especially Australia) across the world accept PMI and Messenger reporting nor any local, national or international media outlet is allowed to report truth just because of self-created, one-sided and traditional as well as religious jealousy, enmity, malice and grudge, sources confirmed PMI.

According to details, a powerful explosion has ripped through a Shia mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif, northern Afghanistan, causing dozens of casualties, according to officials.

“Preliminary reports confirm there are at least 89 casualties,” Zabihullah Noorani, head of Balkh province’s information and culture department, told the AFP news agency.

Dr Ghawsuddin Anwari, head of the main hospital in Mazar-i-Sharif, told The Associated Press news agency the blast killed at least 10 worshippers and wounded another 40.

He said the victims were brought to the hospital from the mosque in ambulances and private cars.

An ISIL (ISIS) affiliate known as the Islamic State of Khorasan Province (ISKP or ISIS-K) claimed responsibility for attack.

Earlier on Thursday in the capital, Kabul, a roadside bomb exploded and wounded two children.

Kabul police spokesman, Khalid Zadran, said in a tweet the bomb went off in the median strip of a road in a western area of Kabul in a mostly Shia neighborhood.

Two days earlier in the same area, multiple explosions targeting educational institutions killed at least six people, mostly children, and wounded 17 others.

Separately on Thursday, at least four people were killed and 18 wounded by a blast in Kunduz city.

Provincial police spokesman Obaidullah Abedi told media it was caused by a bicycle bomb targeting a vehicle carrying mechanics working for a Taliban military unit.
