Afghan interior ministry showcased a captured vehicle with explosives & other improvised devices in #Khost. While the ministry claims that it was intended as VBIED, could be in fact the IED supplier to a (ISKP?) cell in Kabul. /1
The reason to believe this assumption is not only the prepared phone, but the exact wiring used in the Kabul mosque blast, some of the IEDs were placed outside the mosque, the police defused them. /2
This is the phone and the exact same wiring after it was defused from one of the Mosque courtyards. I compared the wiring and preparation with others, there is greater variation. But this has to be likely from same IED maker. /3
