“In a statement, IS said two brothers had targeted a ‘gathering of apostates’ with machine guns and grenades.”
Sunnis consider Shi’ites to be apostates, and apostasy carries the death penalty in Islamic law. Thus attacks like this one are going to happen, and anyone who calls attention to their root causes is “Islamophobic.”
Afghan gunmen attack ‘apostate’ political rally, killing dozens
KABUL/ISLAMABAD – Dozens of people were killed when gunmen opened fire at a political rally in Kabul on Friday, the deadliest assault in Afghanistan since the U.S. signed a withdrawal deal with the Taliban.
The attack, claimed by the Islamic State group, highlights a glaring lack of security in the Afghan capital just 14 months ahead of the scheduled withdrawal of all foreign forces.
It also calls into question a key element of the U.S.-Taliban deal signed Feb. 29 — whether the Taliban can stop jihadis such as IS from running amok in Afghanistan after U.S. forces pull out.
In a statement, IS said two brothers had targeted a “gathering of apostates” with machine guns and grenades.
The gunmen inflicted devastating carnage at the crowded event in west Kabul, killing 32 people and wounding 58 others, health ministry spokesman Wahidullah Mayar told AFP.
Interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi put the toll at 29 dead, with an additional 61 wounded. He said special forces units eventually killed the two gunmen.
