New York / Muhammad Tariq / Anatolia
The United Nations condemned, on Friday, what it described as a “despicable attack” on a mosque in the Afghan capital, Kabul, today, which resulted in civilian casualties.
Earlier on Friday, 10 civilians were killed and 30 others were wounded, as a result of a bombing targeting a mosque in the “Dar Al-Aman” area of the city.
“We condemn in the strongest terms the deadly attack (…), which resulted in dozens of deaths and injuries,” Deputy UN spokesperson Farhan Haq said during a press conference in New York.
He added, “Today’s attack is the latest in a series of indiscriminate attacks on civilian targets in the Afghan capital and provinces recently.”
And he added: “This attack directly affected at least two United Nations employees and their families who were inside the mosque at the time of the attack.”
And he added, “Mette Knudsen, Deputy Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General in Afghanistan, confirmed that the attack, which was carried out on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan and on the eve of Eid al-Fitr, completely ignores human lives and religious sanctities.”
He continued, “There are no strong enough words to condemn this despicable act, which is targeting a place of worship, as Muslims across Afghanistan prepare to celebrate Eid.”
During the past period, Afghanistan witnessed a series of bombings and attacks targeting mosques, buses and others, a number of which were claimed by the terrorist organization “ISIS”, and others for which no party claimed responsibility.
