The Taliban have claimed responsibility for two of the three massive incidents late Friday in Kabul – attacks on Police Academy and NATO base – which, the two incidents in total, left 35 people dead and 27 wounded, the group said in a statement on Saturday.

The Taliban, as usual, once again claimed in the statement to have killed scores of Afghan and foreigners.

Friday was a black day for the capital inhabitants after three massive attacks and suicide bombings occurred in the city, leaving nearly 50 people dead and over 400 others wounded.

The first deadly incident was the truck bombing early Friday in Shah Shaheed locality in Kabul which killed 15 people and wounded about 400 others.

A suicide attack at the entrance of a Police Academy in PD5 of Kabul was the second attack in a day which claimed lives of 26 police trainees and injured 27 others.

Attack on a NATO base was the third incident that shocked the Kabul residents after two insurgents attacked a facility of coalition forces which left eight security guards and a Resolute Support (RS) service member dead.
