Event

Emerging reports say an attack on Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul began at 05:00 (local time) on Monday, January 29. Police have cordoned off the area; as of 07:30, it is unclear if the attack is still ongoing. Further details are not yet available. Avoid the area.

Context

Kabul has been experiencing a wave of deadly terrorist attacks in recent weeks. On January 27, Taliban militants detonated a suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (SVBIED) near Sadarat Square and Chicken Street markets. At least 100 people were killed and more than 160 others were injured. Furthermore, at least 22 people were killed in the January 20-21 attack on the Intercontinental Hotel, also claimed by the Taliban.

Advice

Individuals present in Kabul are advised to remain vigilant, avoid the area of the attack, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.

Due to major security concerns more generally, individuals throughout Afghanistan are urged to keep a safe distance from large gatherings, military convoys, government buildings, and crowded urban areas. Many Western governments advise their citizens against travel to Afghanistan due to the high threat of kidnapping and terrorism, including frequent attacks against Afghan National Defense and Security Forces, local civilians and politicians, and individuals working in the humanitarian and reconstruction fields. Travel to the country should only be undertaken with proper security protocols in place.
