ISIL-K claims responsibility for the attack, reporting that two attackers shot and killed security guards outside the mosque before blowing themselves up inside, where people were worshipping.
ISIL–K leader Mawlawi Ziya ul-Haq is killed and more than 80 fighters are arrested during Taliban raids in the eastern Nangarhar Province. The raids are carried out as ISIL-K has killed several people during attacks in Jalalabad in recent days.
ISIL-K militants open fire against a Taliban vehicle at a gas station in Jalalabad, killing two Taliban members, a gas station attendant, and a child. Two bombs also explode nearby to two more Taliban vehicles, killing another child and wounding three more Taliban members.
Afghan political leader and activist Fatima Gailani, who helped draft a new constitution for Afghanistan and also took part in peace talks with the Taliban, blames exiled former Afghan president Ashraf Ghani for the current "chaotic" situation in the country, and says that U.S. president Joe Biden also contributed by withdrawing troops without a "political settlement" in place.
