Abdullah Abdullah put an allegations of tempering the election results and refused to accept Ashraf Ghani as President of Afghanistan.
ISIS targeted the inauguration of the tyrant Ashraf Ghani”, firing 10 rockets near the presidential palace in Kabul.
A spokesman for the president’s office said nobody was hurt in the explosions on Monday. It was not immediately clear where they had taken place. Islamic State claimed responsibility.
As the blasts were heard during Ghani’s ceremony, he opened his jacket and showed his shirt to the crowd. “This is not a shield, it’s just clothes,” he said. “This is sacrificed to the Afghan people. The head [of the country] is ready to sacrifice for Afghanistan.”
Yesterday, Abdullah has remained unharmed from an attack claimed by Islamic State militants, leaving at least 32 people killed.
The blast occurred after US and Taliban signed a deal in last month of February, which required the Taliban will hold talks with the Afghan government.
