Karachi, July 7 (ANI): The Taliban has reportedly targeted NATO forces in Afghanistan’s capital city of Kabul in a suicide car bombing, carried out as part of the group’s stepped-up attacks during the annual summer offensive.

Kabul police spokesman Ebadullah Karimi said the attack in the south-eastern part of the city injured at least three people, reported the Dawn.

He described the wounded as ‘foreigners’ but did not confirm their identity.

A spokesperson for the coalition said that they were still gathering more information on the attack.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the bombing in a message posted on their Twitter account.

It comes a week after a Taliban suicide car bomber rammed into a NATO military convoy on the main road to Kabul airport, killing at least two Afghan civilians and wounding around 17.

Meanwhile, the site of the attack has been cordoned off.

NATO ended its combat mission in Afghanistan in December after 13 years. However, a small follow-up foreign force, named Resolute Support, has stayed on to train and support the local troops. (ANI)
