NCA Extends Condolences on Tragic Events in Pakistan

The National Coalition of Afghanistan strongly condemns the recent heinous terrorist attack in Peshawar, Pakistan on Sunday, September 29, in which a car bomb explosion killed at least 40 innocent civilians, including women and children, and injuring more than 100 people. The incident followed another terrorist attack on Friday, in which a bomb exploded in a bus, killing 17 people and injuring at least 30 others. The recent malicious attacks once again proves that terrorism remains a regional menace, threatening the lives of innocent people, and needs to be effectively combated by being addressed in a genuine, serious and determined manner.

Additionally, on Saturday, a second earthquake struck Balochistan province in south-west Pakistan, thus far claiming 22 lives and injuring more. This followed the initial massive earthquake on Tuesday in which more than 366 people perished and several hundred injured.  The National Coalition conveys its deep condolences to the families of all the victims of these tragic incidents, and wishes a successful recovery for the numerous injured.
