January 28, 2018

Arg, Kabul: Enemies of humanity and Islam –Taliban, Haqqani Network, Daesh and their sponsors – devastated the lives of hundreds of innocent Afghans in the last few days, conducting brutal terrorist activities in Kabul, Jalalabad and Kandahar.

The Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan declares today (Sunday) a National Mourning Day across the country to commemorate and pay tribute to the victims and their families. The national flag of Afghanistan will be at half-mast throughout the country as well as in Afghan embassies and diplomatic missions abroad.

The Government has also announced that Monday will be a day off in Kabul, in order to free resources to provide better services to those affected as a result of Saturday’s inhumane attack on civilians.
