Details of the incident are not available at the moment.
The Afghanistan Liberation Movement claimed responsibility for today's explosion in PD5 of Mazar-e Sharif against a Taliban shuttle bus.
Still, it is early to say which group was really behind the blast. The AFG L movement usually exaggerate about its attacks against the Taliban. Image
#ISKP claimed responsibility for today's #explosion against TB in #Mazar-e Sharif:
"Caliphate soldiers detonated an explosive device on a bus that was carrying Taliban in PD5 of Mazar-e Sharif in Balkh, which damaged the vehicle, killing and wounding at least 10 Taliban members." Image

#Taliban spokesman said that 40 people were #arrested in #Balkh today for trying #to_fly_abroad #illegally.
"They were temporarily detained for questioning and later most of them were released. Only, the #women whose families (male family members) didn't come yet ... take them home, are still in custody. Arrangements are made for them (for the women who are still in custody) in the women's detention center."
This is the first time that the Taliban officially confirmed that they barred people from going (illegally???) abroad.
It is more likely that the #Taliban have arrested& prevented from flying out, those Afghans who are in the #evacuation& rescue program of the international community. The Afghans, who are allegedly at risk of persecution from the TB& get evacuated without proper travel documents.

When USA and Nato invaded Afghanistan post 9|11 they then helped form a government made up from warlords and criminals who were the ones responsible for the damage and deaths of countless of people. All that aid went to the pockets of these warlords. Image
The people had lost trust in the corrupt government. It's no secret that large number of army and police recruits were drug addicts. The army still some very patriotic soldiers however it's the leadership and warlords which is corrupt.
The best solution here for the Afghan people is if there is a peace deal between the two parties and fighting stops. But I highly doubt that TB will push for that now that they have made such gains and will have the upper hand in the negotiation table. May Allah bring peace.

Does this mean that Atta-Ghani agreement over #Balkh is not yet supported by fully Jamiat, especially FM Rabbani? Does it also mean that Jamiat might suffer from an internal division over the Balkh issue? #Afghanistan
Mehdi, a member of initial Jamiat negotiation team, has already said that Jamiat is not going to take responsibility for Atta-Ghani agreement
