Daesh Attacks Iraqi Embassy in Kabul
Local Editor

Iraq's diplomatic mission in Afghanistan has come under attack as a bomber has set off his explosives close to the Embassy in Kabul.

Daesh Attacks Iraqi Embassy in Kabul

According to security officials in the Afghan capital, a police compound and the nearby Iraqi diplomatic mission have come under attack.

A gun battle is underway at the site of the attack, a police spokesman said.

"Civilians are being evacuated" from the area as the attack is ongoing, said the official, who declined to be named.

Witnesses said at least four explosions, along with the sounds of gunfire and grenades, were heard near Kabul's diplomatic quarter shortly after 11:00 am.

Daesh [Arabic Acronym for the terrorist "ISIS"/"ISIL"] group has claimed responsibility for the assault through its propaganda outlet, Amaq.

Reports said the attackers, who are engaged in a gunfight with security forces, appear to have taken cover in the Iraqi Embassy building.

The Takfiri terror group has in recent months been taking heavy blows on the battlefield against Iraqi armed forces. Iraqi troops recently managed to drive Daesh terrorists out of Mosul, their last urban stronghold in the Middle Eastern state, following a months-long counter-terrorism operation.

Afghanistan has seen a rise in attacks against security forces and civilians by local Taliban militants as well as the Daesh terrorists, who have gained a foothold in the war-torn country's east.

Earlier this week, around 30 Afghan soldiers were killed when Taliban militants attacked an outpost in the southern Province of Kandahar.
