Afghans Demand Security as Kabul Blasts Increase

Residents of Kabul city have expressed deep concerns over a growing number of IED blasts in the nation’s capital, saying there is no day that they do not hear blasts in the city.
 
They said that the security and intelligence agencies have failed to thwart such attacks.
 
Meanwhile, a number of politicians and military experts have also said that the happening of these incidents are shameful for the government, stating that the government is not able to even provide security to the Presidential Palace.
 
In the latest incident, Mir Abdulbaqi Amin, head of the scientific council of the Ministry of Education, was killed in a blast in Kabul city on Wednesday morning.
 
The incident happened in PD5 of Kabul city after a magnetic mine placed on Mir Amin’s vehicle exploded. His driver was also wounded, the statement said.
 
This was one of two separate magnetic mine blasts in Kabul city on Wednesday morning, said Ferdaws Faramarz, a spokesman for the Kabul police. 
 
The first blast happened in PD12 of Kabul city from a magnetic mine placed on a police vehicle and one person was killed and another was wounded, Faramarz said.
 
No group including the Taliban has claimed responsibility for the blasts yet.
 
“It was a tragic scene,” said a Kabul resident named Hamid, referring to the IED attack on Mir Amin’s car.
 
“These things are happening because of the poor performance of the police and the government in general,” said a resident Meraj.
 
The Taliban has described the killing of Mir Abdul Baqi Amin a major loss.
 
“We call on Afghanistan’s security and intelligence agencies to investigate this incident,” said Nooria Nuzhat, a spokeswoman for the Afghan Ministry of Education.
 
“it seems that the security agencies cant provide security to the civilians and are unable to thwart such attacks and this is shameful,” said Sayed Abdullah, a resident in Kabul.
 
“Security threats have increased in every province, the government is not taking serious action against them,” said Zalgai Faeez, a resident of Kabul.
 
This comes hours after three people were killed, and 16 were wounded--including six civilians--in Tuesday's rocket attacks in Kabul.
 
Two of those killed were government employees, according to Ministry of Interior, and there were children among the wounded.
 
At least 14 rockets were fired in Kabul city, including eight launched from PD16 and six from PD17, a security source said on Tuesday, adding that “all rockets were launched from two Toyota "Corolla" vehicles.
