At least two people were killed and 19 injured on Saturday in several bombings targeting the Taliban in Jalalabad, the large city in eastern Afghanistan, according to corroborating sources.

These are the first deadly attacks recorded since the departure of the last American troops from the country on August 30, after twenty years of military presence.

At least two bombs targeted vehicles of the Taliban security forces, according to corroborating sources.

An official from the health department of Nangarhar, of which Jalalabad is the capital, reported 3 dead and 18 injured.

Several local media have for their part indicated that the attacks had left at least two dead and 19 injured.

A photo taken on the spot and obtained by AFP showed a green police pickup, topped with the white Taliban flag, stationary, the hood twisted and almost upright, amid various debris.

ISIS rebel outbreaks in Afghanistan

Jalalabad is the capital of Nangarhar, the main focus of rebels from the Islamic State group in Afghanistan (IS-K), rivals of the Taliban and who claimed responsibility for the bloody attack that killed more than 100 people at Kabul airport at the end of August.

The Taliban returned to power in mid-August following the withdrawal of US forces and the collapse of the government it supported.

They notably promised to restore peace and security, believing that the end of the Western military presence would make it possible to put an end to the violence that has been tearing the country apart for decades.
