Meanwhile, the Taliban say the attacks killed people, most of whom had nothing to do with their organization's combat units.

Considering the recent events in Afghanistan, it can be stated that the country is also turning into an arena of confrontation between militants of various terrorist groups. First of all, we are talking about the confrontation between ISIS and the Taliban. How long this confrontation can drag on and how many lives of peaceful Afghans to take away is an open question.
