On Monday, June 22, unidentified gunmen attacked a car belonging to the Attorney General's Office, killing five individuals, including two prosecutors. The attack took place in Kabul's Deh Sabz district as the car was heading to the Attorney General's Office. No group has yet taken responsibility for the attack.
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 and to gain leverage amid ongoing peace negotiations.
Those in Kabul are advised to monitor developments, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
