Taliban spokesman Mohammad Khorasani said in a statement on the group’s website that the group carried out the “joint attack” in cooperation with another faction of the Pakistani Taliban, the Hafiz Gul Bahadur group. The militant group has kept its distance from the Taliban and carried out attacks independently.

The Pakistani Taliban is an independent group but is allied with the Afghan Taliban, which took over Afghanistan in August 2021 after U.S. and NATO forces withdrew from the country.
