A suspected vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) detonated in the Darulaman district of Kabul at approximately 09:05 (local time) on Wednesday, August 7. Initial reports indicate the blast occurred near the Kabul City passport office and the Harvi Military School in Kot-e-Sangi district of PD6. There are unconfirmed reports of gunfire in the area. A heightened security presence and localized disruptions are anticipated around the blast site. Details are still emerging; avoid the area.

The incident comes shortly after security forces concluded multiple operations targeting suspected Islamic State (IS) militants in in Bagrami district and the Qasaba area of PD15


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.


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.
