The Afghan Intelligence Agency — National Directorate of Security (NDS) has said that the Kandahar terror attack was organised and directed from Chaman from Pakistan.

Chaman is the 2nd largest city of Pakistan’s north-west Balochistan province and borders Afghanistan’s Kandahar province. NDS will be releasing all the details of how the attack was planned from Pakistan tomorrow.

The attack on the police headquarter happened on Thursday and killed 12 people and the responsibility is taken by the Taliban.

This is not for the first time Afghanistan has said that an attack in the south Asian country had links across the border in Pakistan.

According to NDS, the 2017 Kabul terror attack near the German embassy that killed 150 people, the worst in Afghanistan, was planned in Pakistan.

The development comes ahead of the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Washington visit to meet US President Donald Trump. Ahead of the visit, 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed was arrested on terror financing charges which US President said happened due to “pressure” from Washington.
