US, UK Warn Citizens: After the Taliban’s occupation of Afghanistan, where violent incidents are coming to the fore, terrorist activities have started gaining momentum. In the past, more than 45 people were killed in a bomb blast at a mosque here, while dozens were injured. The terrorist group Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for this attack. After this attack, now America and Britain have warned their citizens to stay away from hotels in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.
Let us tell you that the Taliban came to power in August and declared Afghanistan an Islamic emirate. At the same time, with the Taliban taking power, Afghanistan is facing a serious humanitarian and economic crisis. The Taliban is seeking international recognition and assistance to avert a humanitarian disaster and ease Afghanistan’s economic crisis.
At the same time, the Taliban is struggling to control the threat from the terrorist group Islamic State. Let us tell you that this was the first time since the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan when the first meeting between the US and the new ruling class of Afghanistan took place in Doha, the capital of Qatar. During the talks, both sides described controlling the terrorist group Islamic State as an important issue for the current Afghan government. At the same time, the evacuation of foreigners from Afghanistan was also included in the talks. The Taliban agreed to this.
Significantly, the US State Department has said that US citizens who are in or near the Serena Hotel should leave the place immediately, citing security threats in the area. At the same time, the UK State Department asked its citizens to stay away from hotels (especially the Serena Hotel in Kabul) in view of the increasing risk in Afghanistan.
The hotel has been attacked twice
Let us tell you that many foreigners have left Afghanistan since the Taliban took power, although some aid workers and journalists are still in the capital Kabul. Serena Hotel is the most famous luxury hotel in Kabul. The hotel has been attacked twice by terrorist. This hotel is very popular among foreign guests.
In 2014, a few weeks before the presidential election in Afghanistan, there was an attack here. Four gunmen managed to sneak inside the hotel by hiding their pistols in their socks. During this 9 people were killed in the firing. Journalists of the news agency AFP and their family members were also killed in this attack. Earlier in 2008, a suicide bombing killed six people.
