NCA Strongly Condemns Terrorist Attacks in Kunduz province and Southern Afghanistan

The National Coalition of Afghanistan vehemently condemns recent terrorist attacks in various parts of the country during the past several days. These inhumane and abysmal attacks have tragically resulted in the loss of lives of numerous compatriots and have caused many injuries. 

On Friday morning, in Kunduz province, in a suicide attack, an insurgent cowardly killed many civilians, including the district governor of Kunduz province Sheikh Sadruddin. Numerous people were also injured in the shocking attack which took place outside a mosque while citizens were participating in prayers. This atrocious act was against all Islamic and human values. Late Sheikh Sadruddin was providing genuine service to the local populace and will be remembered for his strong sense of patriotism.

On Saturday, in Kandahar province, an insurgent carried out another heinous suicide attack near a bank, killing and injuring several people, including innocent civilian bystanders. In a separate incident in Sangin district of Helmand province, a roadside bomb resulted in the tragic loss of 12 innocent civilians as the car they were travelling on drove over the device. And in eastern Afghanistan, a NATO service member was killed in combat.

The enemies of Afghanistan are once again showing their cowardice, inhumane and cruel nature as they continue to engage in such deplorable attacks, knowing that the result will be loss of innocent lives.  The perpetrators will be subject to the punishment of God for their un-Islamic and inhumane actions.

Once again, the National Coalition of Afghanistan condemns the recent wave of attacks in the strongest terms and extends its heartfelt condolences and solace to the families of all the victims. The NCA also wishes for the successful recovery of the injured.
