A chain of attacks leaves at least three dead in Afghanistan

A series of explosions in the capital and in an Eastern city of Afghanistan have staged the country's passage to a new phase of its agonic war. In this, the Taliban are also objective, although it is again civilians who take the worst part. At least three people died and a score were injured, in the first great attack from the massacre of more than 182 dead, claimed by the Islamic State in the Jorasan, which put a point and end to the chaotic evacuation of Western forces.

This Saturday early in the morning, a Lapa bomb exploded in the Kabulí District of Dasht-e Barchi, home of the Minority Hazara, of Chyta religion, persecuted for years by the Sunni extremists. It did not cause mortal victims. Not at least three subsequent explosions of road mines that occurred in the city of Jalalabad, taking a convoy of Taliban Islamic Emirate forces, and they left, according to local sources, three dead. Two of them were members of the Taliban.

"A Taliban vehicle that patrolled in Jalalabad was the goal," has confirmed the Agency France Presse a source of the fundamentalist movement, who added that "among the wounded there are women and children." An image of the attack shows a truck of the Afghan security forces, with the Emirate flag, partially converted into scrap. The Jalalabad Hospital has received a multitude of injuries, at least 20 according to Afghan media, most innocent.

Jalalabad is the capital of Nangarhar, a border province with Pakistan that has been during the last lustro the feud of the Islamic State in the Jorasan. The regional branch of the armed organization founded Abu Bakr Bagdadi, confronted Al Qaeda and the Taliban despite having ideological affinities, promised last month to turn into a hell both the international withdrawal and the Taliban Government. The latter, who accuse of "apostates" to the movement, vindicated the massacre of the airport.

So far there has been no claim of the attacks of this Saturday. Sources of Western intelligence have alerted the high capacity of the Islamic State in the Jorasan of provoking lethal attacks in the coming months. Its combatants, not a large number, but strongly motivated after the replication of international troops, they were able to benefit from the liberation of thousands of prisoners at the hands of the Taliban during their rapid offensive last month, which caused the government's fall.

The attacks in Kabul and Jalalabad have coincided with the beginning of school classes. But, this course, the schools will be half full: in a last minute edict, which reculates in all the promises of equality between sexes, the Taliban summoned the desks only to the high school children. This decision has been widely interpreted as a prohibition that girls can go to class from secondary school, which in Afghanistan is the period between seven and 12 years.

Size order assumes that the Islamic Emirate of the Taliban looks a little more like that melting Black Afghanistan at the end of the 1990s, and that the country becomes the only one in which half of the population is vetoed. Access to secondary education. Islamic pedagogues have been added to the criticisms. The diplomacy of the Western countries, which had subordinated their recognition of the Afghan government to the granting of rights, faces another challenge.

When they reached power, the Taliban had announced that they would guarantee the rights of women "within the framework of Islamic Law". It had even been opened a small grid for hope when, even with obstacles, they allowed to continue with the basic schooling of girls and placed scenarios in college classes to separate boys and girls, so that everyone could attend. From vetoing them in secondary school, it is a matter of time that the University will dry for feminine.
