NCA Strongly Condemns Heinous Terrorist Attack in Peshawar and Extends Condolences on Tragic Earthquake in Baluchistan, Pakistan

The National Coalition of Afghanistan strongly condemns the recent terrible terrorist attack by insurgents in Peshawar, Pakistan on September 22. A double suicide attack inside a church tragically claimed the lives of 81 people, including women and children, and injuring more than 100, some being critical. These heinous terrorist attacks which target innocent people are against all Islamic and human values. Such incomprehensible events further prove that terrorism continues to be a major threat to the region, and requires genuine and serious effort to effectively combat and eradicate this menace.

The NCA is also deeply saddened to learn news of the massive earthquake in Baluchistan, Pakistan, on September 24, which has thus far tragically killed 238 people, injuring more than 300, and causing significant devastation. The NCA hopes for the successful evacuation of the many that are stranded in the struck areas, and that all necessary resources, doctors, medical facilities and makeshift tents are made available to provide treatment to the injured. The National Coalition of Afghanistan extends its condolences and feelings of sympathy to the families of the victims, and wishes for the swift recovery of those injured in these two tragic incidents.
