On Friday, a huge bomb explosion tipped through the Mawlawi Sekandar Mosque for Sunni Muslims killing 33 and injuring 43 more.
The attack took place at a time when worshipers had gathered at the mosque for Friday prayers. Khatibzadeh pointed to a series of terrorist attacks in Afghanistan over the past days and described the escalation of violence as a source of deep concern.
“The attack on the Sunni mosque in Kunduz Province, which followed Wednesday’s attack on the Shia mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif, clearly shows the evil goals of the terrorists serving as mercenaries for foreigners, who are seeking to wage a civil war in Afghanistan,” he added.
The new terror attack follows four similar bombings across Afghanistan on Thursday, all claimed by Daesh. One of the attacks tore through a Shia mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif in northern Afhhanistan, killing at least 40 people and wounding around 100 others.
