Stability question has once again been raised for Afghanistan following deadly attack lately that killed 103 people and injured 235 others including thirty police officers.

The government declared a national day of mourning on Sunday and flags were flown at half-mast. Monday will be a public holiday and on Tuesday preyer will held for the victim.

The Taliban claimed responsibility of the attack. An ambulance loaded with explosives passed through a security checkpoint in the heart of the most secure part of capital city Kabul.

On Wednesday the country was rocked when ISIS attacked an office of aid group Save the Children in Jalalabad in which four people were killed and dozens others were injured.

About a week ago couple of gunmen attacked the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul, killing at least twenty people and injuring dozen others.

United States President Donald Trump condemned the attack saying, “This murderous attack renews our resolve and that of our Afghan partners.”

Afghanistan is under war for past sixteen years and last year the Afghan and US officials accepted things are not going well in the country. It is also being insisted Taliban would start losing territory again.

Meanwhile, more US troops, in hundreds, are en route to Afghanistan to start with a riskier mission.
