Egypt extended its sincere condolences to Afghanistan, and the families of the victims of “those brutal terrorist operations,” wishing a speedy recovery for the injured, the Egyptian foreign ministry said in a statement.

The ministry added that Egypt reiterates the importance of concerted efforts to combat terrorism, violence and extremism in all its forms and manifestations.

The recent terrorist attack targetted educational facilities in Kabul, as well as a mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif and another in Kunduz on Thursday, killing and wounding dozens of innocent people.

The latest attacks were claimed by the Islamic State (IS) group. 

Since Taliban fighters seized control of Afghanistan last year after ousting the US-backed government, the number of bombings has fallen but the IS group has continued attacks, often against Shia targets.
