Salihi was unharmed but his two security guards were injured and six vehicles were damaged.
A land mine was detonated while the convoy was passing near Musalla district. The armored vehicle carrying Salihi was heavily damaged in the blast.
The ITF chief told AA that they returned to visit Musalla for election campaigns when the blast happened.
"The windows of my armored vehicle were smashed due to the attack. The vehicles of my security staff were not armored. If the land mine had detonated near them, the number of casualties would have been higher," said Salihi.
Salihi said it is the second assassination attempt targeting him within two months.
"My house was bombed twice and my convoy was attacked three times with a bomb," he said.
