TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) terrorist group claimed responsibility for an attack against Shia Muslims in Afghanistan.

On Thursday an official said bombs exploded aboard two passenger vans carrying Shia Muslims in the northern Afghanistan city of Mazar-e-Sharif, killing at least nine people.

The two explosions, within minutes of each other, also wounded 13 in northern Afghanistan.

The victims of the attack were travelling home to break their dawn-to-dusk Ramadan fast, said Mohammad Asif Waziri, a spokesman for a Taliban-appointed police chief.

“The targets appear to be Shia passengers,” Waziri said.

“The enemies of Afghanistan are creating tension and division among our people.”

Taliban security cordoned off the area and residents said members of the Shia minority Hazara ethnic group appeared to be the target of the attack.

The attack is the latest in a series of deadly bombings to shake Afghanistan and comes just days after a blast at a Shia mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif that killed at least 12 worshippers and wounded scores more.
