He added that those killed were mostly young students. A specific educational institution was targeted to create special impact in the perception of foreign nations having troops in Afghanistan. 

ISIS (Daesh) in a social media message accepted the responsibility of Saturday evening attack Kawsar e-Danish. However, the witnesses said that they were part of the same anti-Taliban groups which intend to fail Taliban – Afghan Government’s peace talks to delay foreign troops withdrawal for at least another one year.
