Afghanistan News Alert

Explosion reported around Arzan Qemat Square (Kabul) October 28; avoid the area

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/28/2019, 12:00 AM until 10/29/2019, 11:59 PM (Asia/Kabul). COUNTRY/REGION Kabul

Event

An explosion was reported around Arzan Qemat Square in Kabul's PD12 at approximately 18:45 (local time) on Monday, October 28. The number of associated casualties was not immediately reported; no claims of responsibility were immediately reported in connection with the explosion.

A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected around Arzan Qemat Square over the coming hours. Avoid the affected area.

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 monitor developments to the situation, avoid the affected area, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
