Background Sayed Al-Shuhada school:

On 8 May 2021, a car bombing, followed by two more improvised explosive device (IED) blasts, occurred in front of Sayed al-Shuhada school in Dashte Barchi, a predominantly Shia Hazara area in western Kabul, Afghanistan, leaving at least 90 people dead and 240 injured.The majority of the casualties were girls between 11 and 15 years old. The attack took place in a neighborhood that has frequently been attacked by militants belonging to the regional Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – Khorasan Province (ISIL-K) over the years.

Following the attack, residents of Dashte Barchi expressed anger over the lack of security in the area.The residents said the government has not done enough to secure Dashte Barchi, in spite of knowing it has repeatedly come under attack from militants belonging to ISIL. Many of the residents held former Afghan president Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai responsible for the attack and raised loud chants against the Afghan government and security forces
