NCA Condemns Terrorist Attacks on ANP Officers in Kandahar and District Intelligence Chief in Northern Afghanistan

The National Coalition of Afghanistan vehemently condemns the terrorist attack by insurgents late Sunday evening, where they targeted a border post in Shorabak district of Kandahar province, near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, tragically killing 11 Afghan National Police (ANP) officers. In a separate incident, 5 more Afghan national police officers were killed in Kandahar province when a member of the Afghan Local Police fired on them. ANP officers continue to courageously perform their duties even though they are increasingly being targeted by insurgents, as Afghan national security forces continue to assume command of security responsibilities from NATO forces.

In another cowardice and malicious attack on Monday in Chardara district near Kunduz province, 2 insurgents shot to death Mr. Abdul Hussain, a district intelligence officer, as he was on his way to work. Such brutal attacks by Afghanistan’s enemies once again prove they have nothing to offer the Afghan nation, other than ruthless killing and terror. They gain only increased hatred by the Afghan people.

In addition to expressing its strong condemnation, the National Coalition of Afghanistan conveys its deep condolences and sympathy to the families of all fellow compatriots whose lives were tragically lost in these attacks. They are martyrs of the nation who have sacrificed their lives in the service of their people.
