Kabul:  Hamdullah Mukhles, a key and senior commander of the Taliban and one who entered the Presidential Palace on Aug 15, has died during the attack on a hospital in Kabul on Tuesday.

The Taliban did not say anything about his killing though, sources have confirmed that Mullavi Hamdullah Mukhlis was among dozens killed in Kabul, Khaama Press reported.

Mukhlis was reportedly appointed as commander of military corps in Kabul and was one of the prominent commanders of the Taliban, the news agency reported.

Meanwhile, ISIS-K has claimed responsibility for the blast.

A deadly attack on a military hospital in the Afghan capital, is a reminder that health facilities should never be a target, the UN’s Deputy Spokesperson said on Tuesday.

Farhan Haq was briefing journalists in New York, after two explosions detonated near the entrance of the Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan hospital in Kabul, leaving at least 19 dead and dozens more injured, according to news reports.

There was no claim of responsibility, but Taliban officials reportedly laid blame on an affiliate group of the ISIL terrorist network.

“We express condolences to the families of those who lost their lives and a swift recovery to the many people who were injured”, said Haq.

“This is a reminder that health facilities and infrastructure are not a target, and that all civilians must be protected.”
