Bomb attacks on Talibans in Jalalabad, several killed, IS faction suspected
A war of supremacy has begun among the partners of the caretaker Government in Afghanistan. Even as Deputy Prime Minister Baradar has disappeared from public view after a face-off with Haqqani leaders in the presidential palace, a series of bomb attacks have killed an unknown number of people in Jalalabad in the last couple of days. At least seven people were killed and 30 injured in the latest blast on Sunday. The blasts were targeted at Taliban trucks.

KABUL, Sept 19: Closely following the recent attack on Taliban co-founder and Deputy Prime Minister Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar in Kabul by leaders of Haqqani network in what is seen as the beginning of an in-fighting for supremacy among the partners of the caretaker Government a week ago, a series of explosions in the eastern provincial city of Jalalabad have killed and injured several people.

Jalalabad is the Capital city of Nangarhar province in the eastern part of the country, 100 km from the Capital Kabul.

At least seven people were killed and 30 injured in the latest blast on Sunday. The blasts were targeted at Taliban trucks. Nobody has owned up the resposibility of the blasts in Jalalabad so far. However, an Islamic State group affiliate based in eastern Afghanistan, which is opposed to Taliban leadership, is suspect.

Several Taliban fighters were killed or wounded in the explosion and taken to hospital, eyewitnesses said. The blast occurred at a major transport terminal in the city, on the road to Kabul.

At least three people were killed in Jalalabad on Saturday in a series of bomb attacks on Taliban fighters by IS terrorists. This was the first such terror attack since the US forces left the Afghan soil on August 31.

A bomb exploded in Kabul also on Saturday, injuring two people.

There was also reports of infighting among the leaders of the caretaker Government. Blasts are said to be consequences of such infighting. The Zadran tribe, whose core is the Haqqani network led by Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani, dominates the road from the eastern cities to the national Capital.

Earlier, while the US pullout was going on, there was a huge suicide bomb attack at the Kabul airport swamping with Afghans trying to leave the country as the Taliban had taken over control of Government even as President Ashraf Ghani fled. There were over 200 casualties of Afghans and 13 American soldiers.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon has admitted 'mistake' over an air attack on terrorists in Kabul August 29 killing 10 civilians. A Taliban suicide bomber was the target of the drone strike. General Kenneth Frank McKenzie, the commander of the US Central Command, said it was "unlikely that the vehicle and those who died in the attack were associated with Islamic State-Khorasan or were a direct threat to US forces".
