The incident is observed to be the bloodiest assault in the region since United States forces left the country. There are submissions that the attack could be a design to further destabilize Afghanistan in the wake of the Taliban takeover.

A medical source at the Kunduz Provincial Hospital who reportedly gave an insight into the incident said that 35 dead and more than 50 wounded had been taken there, while a worker at a Doctors Without Borders hospital reported 15 dead and scores more wounded.
