Let it never be said that ISIS discriminates in its choice of places to bomb or carry out knife or van attacks on, well, anybody. As previous posts on WWW this weekend show, it was post-Christian Europe (Paris) yesterday, and the largest Muslim country in the world, Indonesia earlier today. Now comes a report from the Islamic heartland, Kabul, the capital of Armpitistan, of yet another suicide bombing in that shithole country.
Officials in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar say that Islamic militants attacked a provincial government building there today, sending at least nine followers of the Prophet to Paradise. A spokesthingy for the governor of Nangarhar province said a suicide car bomb exploded outside a building which belongs to the provincial finance directorate.
The attackers then stormed the building, trading fire with security officials. He said security forces killed one of the attackers and surrounded the building, adding that the gun battle was still underway. At the local hospital, another spokesthingy told the meeja nine people were killed and more than 35 wounded.
As usual, no-one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. As usual, Western media report that both the Taliban and a local affiliate ISIS have carried out numerous attacks in the region. The Muslim civil war continues. So, alas, does Western involvement.
