NCA Vehemently Condemns Taliban Insurgent Attack on U.S. Consulate

The National Coalition of Afghanistan vehemently condemns the recent shocking and incomprehensible coordinated suicide attack by Taliban insurgents on the U.S. Consulate office in Herat province. The cowardice and heinous attack resulted in loss of two Afghan security guards and injuring at least 19 people, mostly civilians. All seven insurgents involved in the attack were killed.

By conducting such senseless attacks, the insurgents are once again proving they are on the losing side by illustrating their desperation. The momentum is clearly against them and they gain nothing but more hatred by the Afghan people. The people of Afghanistan are in strong favour of long-term strategic partnership with its international partners, in particular the U.S.

Insurgents also launched additional attacks in Uruzgan and Paktika provinces which tragically claimed the lives of several Afghan police officers and injured more than twenty civilians. All insurgents involved in the odious attacks were killed by Afghan security personnel. In a separate incident, a landmine exploded in front of a house in Tirinkot which sadly killed one civilian and injured three children.

The National Coalition of Afghanistan conveys its heartfelt condolences to all fellow compatriots whose lives were tragically lost in these abhorrent attacks and wishes for a swift recovery of the injured. The NCA also commends Afghan security forces that are courageously standing up to and combating these enemies of Afghanistan on a daily basis.
