Security officials in Parwan province said a "Daesh cache of explosives and weapons" in the province's center (Charikar) was destroyed.
They further said that three persons have been detained in connection with the cache's maintenance, including a woman.
“There were fifty mortar shells, two rocket launchers and fifty rockets in this house, there were two suicide vests, there was also a vehicle, and 21 kg of explosives,” said Mohammad Kamran Habibi, spokesman for the Parwan police command.
Local residents, on the other hand, claim that the explosion has caused them significant financial damages.
The incident also injured five persons, residents said.
“There are about a hundred houses in the area, the windows are broken,” Dawood, a resident said.
Some people say they are unable to rebuild their homes due to the poor economic situation and are seeking compensation from the government.
“People have suffered a lot, the gates of the people have been broken, the windows have all been broken,” said Mayel, a resident.
“We ask the Islamic Emirate to work with us to renovate the windows of our houses,” said Hamed, the victim.
Despite security authorities in Parwan claiming that the explosives and weapons belonged to Daesh, Daesh has yet to comment on the matter.
Such incidents have previously occurred in Charikar.
