Kabul: The U.S. embassy in Afghanistan’s capital city Kabul has issued a security alert warning for its citizens regarding militants planning attacks in the city.
“The U.S. embassy in Kabul continues to receive reports of militants planning unspecified attacks in Kabul City and elsewhere in Afghanistan against locations and individuals with potential American connections,” Khaama Press quoted the alert statement by the embassy as saying.
The statement also said the militants are looking to attack Afghan and U.S. government facilities, foreign embassies, foreign guest houses, restaurants, hotels, airports, civilian institutes, and educational centers.
The latest security alert by the U.S. embassy comes as the anti-government armed militant groups have been planning to expand their attacks in the region, specifically following the death of Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor in U.S. drone strike last Saturday.
The Afghan Government has also stepped up its preparations to counter the militants.
