NCA Condemns Terrorist Attack in Kabul

The National Coalition of Afghanistan (NCA) condemns in the strongest terms the heinous terrorist attack carried out early this morning by insurgents against an Afghan National Army bus, which resulted in the tragic loss of ANA personnel, one of which was a woman. The brutal attack also left scores of innocent civilians wounded.

By continuing to engage in such inhumane and cowardice attacks, the insurgents are again exhibiting their desperation, knowing that the momentum is not on their side. They will achieve nothing but increased hatred among our nation.

The National Coalition of Afghanistan also calls on the leadership of Afghanistan to act with utmost responsibility, in accordance to the national interest of Afghanistan, at this critical juncture in our nation’s history. The ongoing fight against extremists and terrorists in Afghanistan requires a consistent and clear approach by the Government of Afghanistan, as well as continued assistance from our international partners.

The National Coalition extends its deepest condolences to the families of the victims that perished in the attack, and wishes for the successful recovery of all those injured.
