“More than 35 Taliban militia members were killed or wounded, in a series of explosions that took place,” the group added, referring to blasts on Saturday and Sunday.
The Taliban has not yet commented on the statement.
Two Afghan civilians died as a result of an explosion at a bus station in the eastern city of Jalalabad in Nangarhar province on Sunday morning, an eyewitness said. He added that the blast also injured one Taliban militant.
On Saturday, at least three people died and another 18 were injured because of a car bomb exploding in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad in Nangarhar province.
