NCA Vehemently Condemns Recent Insurgent Attacks

The National Coalition of Afghanistan (NCA) condemns, in the strongest terms, recent intensified heinous attacks by insurgents, during the past several days. On Thursday, November 28, at least 6 innocent civilians were tragically killed and ten others injured in Achin district of Nangarhar province, while a roadside bomb hit a civilian vehicle, being followed by a second explosion while residents tried to assist the victims.

In a separate attack on Wednesday, November 27, insurgents engaged in another horrific and barbaric crime by killing 6 Afghan aid workers employed by the Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED) in Faryab province. The victims were courageously performing their duties, providing support for development projects aimed at bettering the lives of the Afghan people. On Tuesday evening, insurgents cowardly assassinated a tribal elder in Lashkargah city of Helmand province.

In addition to vehemently condemning the attacks, the NCA conveys its deep condolences and feeling of sympathy to the bereaved families of the victims of these tragic and inhumane incidents. The NCA also extends its best wishes for the successful and swift recovery of those injured.
