ISIS gunmen disguised as medical staff attacked a military hospital in Afghanistan's capital on Wednesday, leaving more than 30 people dead and dozens injured. The assault started with a suicide bombing at the back of the hospital and then continued with a number of gunmen opening fire within the building, reports said. Afghan security forces that rushed to the scene fought the gunmen for hours. The hospital is located across the road from the US embassy.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
