At least 50 killed as ISIS carries out 2nd major Afghan mosque attack this week

(ZEROHEDGE) – As the Taliban continues to struggle to devise a functioning government administration that can provide adequate security and stability, while keeping the electricity flowing and food prices stable (among the most pressing needs confronting the Afghan people), yet another mosque was attacked Friday – the second major mosque attack in the country within a week.

Even as the Taliban retaliated against ISIS-K, the suspected perpetrators, by launching a deadly raid on an ISIS-K hideout, the insurgent group that sees itself as the biggest rival to Taliban rule was apparently bold enough to carry out another attack: per the NYT, a blast struck a Shiite mosque in the northern city of Kunduz Province in the middle of Friday prayers.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, confirmed the explosion and said there were casualties, but refused to provide an exact figure on casualties, saying the Taliban is still investigating, the AFP reported that at least 50 were killed in the attack, making it the biggest since the attack on the Kabul Airport that killed 13 U.S. marines and some 200 Afghans.
