Another mosque bombing in Afghanistan injured at least 15 people on Friday. Nehemiah with FMI says the Islamic State Khorasan, or ISIS-K, has claimed responsibility. But unlike the previous attacks which targeted Shia Muslims, this bomb went off at a Sunni mosque.

Nehemiah says ISIS-K wants the attacks to look like sectarian violence between Sunni and Shia Muslims. In reality, ISIS-K is targeting everyone, not just those traditionally seen as enemies.

ISIS-K violence

And the violence is spreading. Nehemiah says, “The following day, there was a bomb attack in a minivan in Kabul, capital of Afghanistan. A Shia reporter who was a journalist died there. The next day, there was another bombing in a Shia mosque, in another province of Afghanistan. And then in Pakistan, ISIS attacked and killed two army personnel.”
