The next day after an explosion in Kabul, which killed at least 90 people, residents of Kabul have estimated the cost of another brutal attack on their city. The blast occurred just a few days before the Holy month of Ramadan, when families gathered together to celebrate.
Instead, the relatives buried the dead and cared for the wounded.
Most of the wounded were taken to 3 major hospitals of the city offices which remained open for those who became a victim of the explosion. As the doctors worked around the clock, the hospital sent urgent calls for the delivery of large amounts of blood to treat many with serious injuries.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. By Thursday morning, Afghan security forces cordoned off streets in the hundreds of meters from the place. Meanwhile, traffic around the safe zone returned to its normal state.
To the extent that, as a nation grieves, the President of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani expressed his "deepest condolences" live on television. "It was a brutal act that brought grief to our compatriots during the Holy month of Ramadan," he said.
According to media reports, people are angry that so much money has been spent by so many countries to ensure the security of Afghanistan, and the attack still can't be stopped. The fact that this can happen in the capital that the truck is filled with such quantity of explosives, may simply explode. Currently, people have turned their anger on officials.
The Taliban refused responsibility for the bombing, and the Islamic state remains silent on this issue.
