Afghanistan: Kabul Military University Rocked by Explosions, Gunfire
Local Editor

The Marshal Fahim Military Academy in the Afghan capital city of Kabul came under attack with a series of explosions and heavy gunfire heard at the compound, local media reported.

Terrorists launched the assault on the entrance to the academy around 5am local time, TOLO News reported citing eyewitnesses and a source inside the camp.

Five officers were killed and 10 people injured, according to local media citing Afghan Ministry of Defense Spokesman Dawlat Waziri.

Two of the five attackers were eliminated by security forces and two others died as they detonated the explosive near at the gate of the academy, while the fifth was arrested.

Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] claimed responsibility for the attack, Reuters reported citing Amaq, the group's mouthpiece.

Marshal Fahim Military Academy was the target of an attack last October, when a suicide bombing killed 15 Afghan Army cadets as they were leaving the facility located near Qambar square in Afghanistan's capital.

Afghanistan has been gripped by a spate of deadly attacks over the past two weeks.
The latest incident came just two days after a powerful explosion rocked the Afghan capital's diplomatic district, killing 103 people and injuring at least 235, including 30 police officers.

The explosive device was planted in an ambulance and went off at a police checkpoint in a Taliban-claimed attack.

Earlier on Wednesday, gunmen attacked the offices of the international NGO Save the Children in the city of Jalalabad. The assault, which left two dead and 12 injured, was later claimed by Daesh terrorist group.
