Afghanistan: Movement restrictions ordered in Kabul April 10

Security officials order movement restrictions in Kabul on April 10 due to vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) threat; remain vigilant

10 Apr 05:43 AM UTC
TIMEFRAME expected from 4/10/2019, 12:00 AM until 4/10/2019, 11:59 PM (Asia/Kabul). COUNTRY/REGION Kabul

Event

Kabul Security Force (KSF) officials issued a movement restriction order for Resolute Support (RS) vehicles on the morning (local time) of Wednesday, April 10, due to the credible threat of a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED). Officials are asking for all non-essential road movement to be suspended as of 09:45. Heightened security measures, including an increase in checkpoints, searches, and delays entering into secured locations are anticipated in the coming hours.

Context

Taliban and Islamic State (IS) militants launch attacks on government personnel, security forces, and civilians in Afghanistan on a near-daily basis. Such assaults are, in part, intended to undermine the perceived capacity of Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) - and the Afghan government more broadly - to adequately provide security in the wake of the withdrawal of most US-led NATO forces from the country.

Advice

Individuals in Kabul are advised to remain vigilant for militant activity, avoid all non-essential road movement, and adhere to instructions and advice issued by their home governments.

The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas, other areas should be considered strictly off limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
