Afghanistan suffers from a sharply deteriorating security situation. This is mainly due to the massive return of the Taliban and the expanding activities of Islamic State (IS) and other Jihadist groups which led to a tremendous increase in terrorist attacks leading to an extraordinarily high level of civilian casualties. On July 23, Kabul was ones again rocked by a major terrorist attack. Afghanistan capital city experienced a twin explosion which hit a large, demonstration of tens of thousands of the Hazara minority, killing at least 80 people and wounding hundreds of others. IS claimed responsibility for the suicide attack which was carried out by two of its fighters.
