The ISIS group Wednesday claimed responsibility for an ongoing attack on Afghanistan's largest military hospital in the capital Kabul.

The claim was issued via ISIS’s news outlet Aamaq, which said that “ISIS commandos have attacked the military hospital in Kabul.”

Amaq did not provide any other details on the ongoing assault.

ISIS was responsible for a number of attacks in Afghanistan, including the capital city.

The group’s so-called Khorasan Province, which covers Afghanistan and Pakistan, has recently stepped up its activity in both countries.

Amaq issued its claim through its outlets on the messaging app Telegram.
