ISIL claims responsibility for attack on Afghanistan's Herat

TEHRAN, Jan. 24 (MNA) – The ISIL terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack in the western Afghan city of Herat in a statement on Sunday.

At least seven people have been killed and nine people wounded in a bomb blast on a minibus in the western Afghan city of Herat. 

Herat is the country’s third-biggest city, close to the border with Iran, but had remained relatively peaceful in recent months.

The ISIL terrorist group has carried out several terrorist attacks in Afghanistan so far. A suicide attack on a Shia mosque in Kunduz killed more than 150 people.

ISIL has also claimed responsibility for recent bombings against the Taliban in Jalalabad.
