No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack on Kabul’s mosque, but it appears to have been carried out by the Islamic State in Khorasan Province, an IS-affiliated regional group. The group has been active in Afghanistan since 2014 and is posing major security challenges to the new Taliban rulers in the country. After seizing power in Afghanistan in August last year, the Taliban took strong action against IS in eastern Afghanistan.
