In the city of Mazar-i-Sharif, two explosions thundered, the purpose of which were Shiites - Hazaras

MAZAR SHARIF, April 29 - Sangar, Qari Ahmad. Exactly one week ago, a terrorist attack took place in this city in a Shiite-Hazara mosque.

Yesterday, April 29, at about 17:00, two explosions occurred in Mazari Sharif, the center of Balkh province, as a result of which about 30 people were killed and injured.

Sangar website's correspondent reports that the first explosion occurred in the Third District, on the street of the Sultan Giyasuddin school, near the “Elite Wall” of Balkh, in the parking lot of passenger minibusses Aliabad and Sajjadia, the place of residence of the Hazaras.

“The second explosion occurred in the Tenth District, at the intersection known as Containers, Kartae Sajjadia, not far from the Zahir Vahdat Mosque. Both explosions were carried out using magnetic mines. Both cars were passenger carriers and of the Tunis type. Both cars became completely unusable - one burned down, the second was completely destroyed," he said.

According to information got Sangar from the Taliban* Provincial Police Department in Balkh, both explosions killed nine people and injured 13. However, according to data received from two hospitals in Mazar-i-Sharif, the death toll was 11 and 19 injured, with three others in critical condition.

Haji Mohammad Mohaqiq, one of the leaders of the Hazara-majority Wahdat party, condemned the killing of "civilians and defenseless and fasting Hazaras", citing the "criminal hands of Takfiri terrorism" and called the Taliban to account.

“The Taliban claim that the country's security is one hundred percent guaranteed. Who is responsible for these crimes and egregious genocide because of their ethnicity and religion? The Taliban government must be held accountable for this tragic incident, or if they are not on one with the Takfiri terrorists, arm the people themselves. And leave the security of the region to the people,” wrote Haji Mohammad Mohakkek on his Facebook page.

Exactly one week ago, on April 21, during Friday prayers, a suicide bomber blew himself up among the congregation at the Sedokan Mosque, the largest and oldest Shiite Hazara mosque in the center of Mazar-i-Sharif, killing 31 and injuring 87 people. On 19 April, two Hazara schools in the Dashti Barchi district of western Kabul were also attacked by two suicide bombers, killing and injuring about 60 students.

ISIS* claimed responsibility for the attacks. This group is likely to claim responsibility for yesterday's attack as well.

*The organization is under UN sanctions for terrorist activities.
