Law enforcement officials said the attack happened around 6: 00 "in the area of ​​responsibility of the 17-th Kabul police station." This is a protected area, which is not so easy to get. However, for militants, “increased security” did not become an obstacle.

So far, no terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack on the UN car. The militants have also not put forward any requirements in connection with the seizure of people hostage (at the moment).
