Press Release over IED Explosion in 8th District of Kabul

Presidential Palace, Kabul: President Ashraf Ghani strongly condemned the improvised explosive device explosion that took place this morning in 8th district of Kabul.  The IED that targeted a vehicle carrying staff of Da Afghanistan Bank resulted in wounding Abdullah Dawrani, Director of Financial Disputes Resolution of DAB and martyring his security guard.

President Ghani said that targeting civil servants and perpetrating IED attacks in cities reveal the defeat of the Taliban and other terrorist groups against the Afghan Defense and Security Forces in battlefields and demonstrate their hostility against the great nation of Afghanistan.

The President stressed that using innocent civilians as shields and targeting public sites is a crime against humanity and Islamic principles, adding that Taliban and other terrorist groups cannot flinch from perpetrating such acts of terror before God and people of Afghanistan by denying responsibility over the attacks.

President Ghani instructed the pertinent authorities to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to justice. He offered his deepest sympathies to the family of the martyred security guard and prayed for the speedy recovery of those wounded in the incident.
