Attacker in Kandahar Reportedly Hails from Pakistan, Afghan Media States


Kabul: According to media outlets affiliated with the Taliban’s intelligence service, last week’s attack in Kandahar was carried out by two individuals hailing from Central Asian nations, one of whom was from Tajikistan.

The attackers, identified as Madiarov Asadbig and an individual using the alias “Tariq Abdullah,” reportedly joined the Daesh Khorasan, a branch of the Islamic State terrorist group, two months prior in Balochistan, Pakistan.

These reports suggest that the duo underwent mental training in Balochistan before entering Kandahar a few days before the assault. Balochistan is depicted as a significant hub for Daesh Khorasan, purportedly hosting the group’s hideouts, educational facilities, and bomb-making sites. Shahab al-Muhajir, the alleged leader of Daesh Khorasan, along with his close associates, is said to be residing in Balochistan, orchestrating attacks on Afghan soil from there.

Additionally, the media outlet stated that one of the assailants, also known by the alias “Tariq Abdulrahman,” was allegedly involved in a previous attack in Kerman, Iran.

The incident has raised concerns, especially amidst ongoing worries expressed by members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) regarding the presence in the region. The CSTO Secretary-General, in an interview with the Russian News Agency TASS, highlighted that CSTO member states are bolstering their borders adjacent to Afghanistan to prevent potential terrorist infiltrations.
