Presidential Palace, Kabul: Taliban once again uncovered their despicable face and perpetrated a terrorist attack in 6th district of Kabul that killed and wounded scores of our innocent fellow citizens, including women and children.
Denouncing this gruesome act of terror, President Ashraf Ghani said Taliban are launching terrorist assaults on civilians and public facilities for the sake of receiving concessions in peace talks.
The president said the Taliban’s perception to get credits in peace talks by protracting such heinous and inhuman crimes is an illusion and the brave Afghan Defense and Security forces are fully prepared to suppress them at every corner of the country.
The president ordered relevant health authorities to make every possible effort to reach out those affected as a result of the incident.
President Ghani offered his deepest sympathies to the families of deceased and wished speedy recovery to those who sustained injuries.
