Despite the fact, no one claimed responsibility for the incident immediately,  the Taliban and an Islamic State affiliate are suspected to be the factors as they have in the past carried out attacks in the capital.

For instance, on late Monday, the Taliban militants targeted and attacked a checkpoint in the southern Kandahar province in Afghanistan. The attack claimed the lives of eight police.
