Suspected militants launched a complex attack on a midwife training center in Jalalabad (Nangarhar province) on Saturday, July 28, killing three people and wounding seven others. Both of the assailants were killed in the operation; one died when detonating a suicide bomb while the other was killed following an hours-long gun battle with security forces.

While no group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, the Islamic State (IS) group is suspected of carrying it out and the Taliban have denied involvement. Additional militant attacks are possible in Jalalabad in the near-term.


Islamic State-Khorasan Province (IS-KP) is active in Nangarhar province and frequently carries out attacks on security forces and government personnel and installations in the area, among other targets.


Individuals present in Jalalabad are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

In general, the security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Although travel is permissible in some areas, other areas should be considered strictly off-limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
