This was announced by a hospital representative. The attack took place in a district inhabited mostly by Shiites. Initially, no one claimed responsibility for the attack in the Pul-e-Sukhta neighborhood, and the radical Islamist Taliban government did not comment.

The day before, the terrorist militia Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility for a bomb attack in the same district, killing at least eight civilians and wounding many. The IS fighters are Sunnis and harbor a deadly hatred of all Shiites. Shiaism is the second largest religious current within Islam after the Sunnis.
