Terrorists have once again killed and injured dozens of innocent Afghans by launching a suicide attack on one of learning centers in outskirts of PD 13 in western Kabul.
Afghanistan ministry of interior has confirmed that the explosion occurring in vicinity of a learning course in western Kabul has killed 30 innocent people and injured more than 18 others who have been taken to nearly hospitals for treatment.
The country’s lower house of parliament by expressing concern over killing and injuring of a number of our countrymen say if Taliban do not take responsibility for the attack, they should declare ceasefire as soon as possible to prove their intention for peace in the country.
“Peace talks with the Taliban group are considered as an imagination for the people of Afghanistan. It is not important who is signing the peace agreement. The important thing is that the ongoing war should be ended,” said Nahid Farid, an Afghan lawmaker.
She stressed that peace talks with Taliban would mean nothing if such attacks continue across the country. Pointing to capabilities of Afghan national Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF), Mrs. Farid said ANDSF have the capability to bust terrorist networks operating inside Afghanistan one day or another, but busting terrorist groups having safe havens beyond Afghanistan borders need national and international determination.
Feda Mohammad Ulfat, another Afghan lawmaker, says terrorists have once again proved that they do not believe in Islamic and human rights values. He said that terrorists only knew how to kill innocent people of the country.
Meanwhie, Second Vice President Sarwar Danesh in his most recent remarks in connection with increasing insecurities, Taliban attacks and killing innocent civilians has said there has been clear contradiction in Taliban’s approach as they simultaneously follow peace talks and increase violence. “We’re asking our international allies particularly the US and UN to review their policies about the Taliban group and prevent them from their terrorism and killing innocent civilians in Afghanistan,” Danesh stressed.
Reacting in connection with the attack on the learning course, head of Afghanistan High Council for National Reconciliation Dr. Abdullah Abdullah has considered the attack on learning center in western Kabul against human and all Islamic and human rights values and norms, saying that the coward terrorists by attacking on innocent children and students are not committed to any principles.
Afghanistan civil society organizations and Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) have also condemned the attack on learning course and called it as a war crime and against all human rights values and norms, saying that terrorists by conducting such attacks have proved that they have no intention for ending the continued war in the country.
It is worth mentioning hat fifty-one civilians have been killed 137 others wounded in the Taliban attacks in the past one week, spokesperson of the interior ministry has said.
The Taliban carried out 356 attacks during the period. The Taliban had killed 51 civilians and 137 wounded in two suicide bombings and 52 bomb blasts. According to the MoI spokesperson, 401 Taliban militants were killed and 140 others wounded in the Afghan forces operation.
