The Islamic State terror organization claimed the attack through its Amaq news agency.
The agency identified the suicide bomber as “Sheikh Radwan” and said he detonated an explosives-laden belt at the entrance of the ministry in Kabul.The attack comes a day before a ceasefire declared by the government is due to begin and three days before another declared by the Taliban on the occasion of Eid al-fitr celebrations that mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
This is the first ceasefire during the 17 years of conflict since the invasion of the country by the United States.
