National Coalition of Afghanistan Strongly Condemns Attack on Afghan National Army Soldiers

The National Coalition of Afghanistan vehemently condemns the recent cowardice and barbaric attack on our ANA soldiers in Ghaziabad district of Kunar province.

The inhumane attack by insurgents, as Afghanistan’s core enemies, has tragically resulted in the loss of life of 21 of our patriotic soldiers. These soldiers, as sons and martyrs of our nation, will be remembered for their courageous and heroic service to the Afghan nation, in the noble task of defending Afghanistan’s security, stability and integrity. We honor their sacrifice and service, as they will never be forgotten.

The recent attack is no surprise to the Afghan nation, as insurgents have continued to prove their ill will, trying to undermine our efforts in realizing a peaceful and secure Afghanistan. The enemies of our nation will never be able to deter, through such malicious attacks, our resolve in ensuring a united, stable, and prosperous Afghanistan.

We once again call on the Government of Afghanistan to maintain a serious, clear and consistent approach towards the armed opposition. We also reiterate the importance of seriously addressing the root causes and locations where such terrorist attacks are emanating from.

The NCA extends its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family members of the martyred soldiers, and wishes for the successful recovery of the injured, as well as the safe return of those that have been reported missing.
