NCA Strongly Condemns Roadside Bombing in Ghazni Province Resulting in Loss of Civilian Lives

The National Coalition of Afghanistan is deeply shocked and saddened to learn about the roadside bombing in Andar district of Ghazni province, which tragically killed 18 innocent civilians, including 14 women, four men and a child. A minivan carrying civilians to a wedding struck a bomb resulting in the tragedy.

The National Coalition of Afghanistan strongly condemns the cruel and malicious acts by insurgents, who continue to revert to roadside bombings as a means of waging violence and devastation on the Afghan nation.  The enemies of Afghanistan, by using improvised explosive devices, are responsible for the overwhelming majority of civilian casualties. In a separate attack in Kabul, insurgents claimed responsibility for another cowardice bombing which injured 4 Afghan military personnel and tragically killed a seven year old girl.

The National Coalition of Afghanistan conveys its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families of the victims of this tragedy, and extends its best wishes for the successful recovery of those injured. The NCA further calls on the Government of Afghanistan to exert greater resources on eliminating such roadside weapons which are taking a heavy toll on the local populace.
