The head of the Pakistan Embassy Envoy, Ubaid Ur Rehman Nizamani, was the target of an attack on its embassy compound.
A security guard was wounded by shots fired by attackers while saving Pakistan’s embassy envoy in the Afghan capital, in what Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif called “an assassination attempt” on the head of the mission.

Remember here one thing that ever since the Taliban took power, the administration has faced major chaos in the Islamic State.
The IS militants have carried out a number of attacks in the past few months. The IS also claimed the responsibility for the attack in December.
In recent months, the IS targeted key installations including the Russian and Pakistani embassies and the office of the former prime minister in recent months.
