Both the Taliban and IS have stepped up attacks in recent months in Kabul and elsewhere across Afghanistan, including massive bombings staged by militants determined to inflict maximum casualties, instill terror in the population and undermine confidence in Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's government and the country's security forces.
The assault began when a suicide bomber struck the troops before other militants opened fire in an early-morning raid.
Meanwhile, Interior Minister Wais Barmak said that the number of people killed in the massive suicide vehicle bombing in a crowded area in central Kabul in the early afternoon of January 27 had risen to 103. The spokesman said two of the attackers detonated their explosive vests, two others were killed by security forces and the fifth was taken into custody alive.
The group says its latest attack was intended as a message to U.S. President Donald Trump, who past year sent more American troops to the country.
"We are very confident the TalibanHaqqani network was behind the killing of more than 103 people this past Saturday", said Captain Tom Gresback, a USA military spokesman for the NATO-led Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan, without elaborating further on USA intelligence or offering any link to Pakistan.
