Afghanistan: Explosion kills two police officers in Kabul August 1

Afghanistan Alerte de sécurité

Bomb detonates at checkpoint in Kabul on August 1, killing at least two policemen

TIMEFRAME expected from 1/8/2019, 12h00 until 8/8/2019, 11h59 (Asia/Kabul). COUNTRY/REGION Kabul

Event

At least two policemen were killed and three others were wounded in a bomb explosion at a checkpoint in the Panjsad-Family area in PD15 of Kabul. The bomb detonated around 04:30 (local time) on Thursday, August 1. Local media outlets have said that the Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Similar attacks are possible in Kabul in the near term.

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 province 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 or their home governments.

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