Afghan National Security Adviser (NSA) Hamdullah Mohib in reaction to Kabul hospital attack has warned the Taliban to end the senseless violence.
“The Afghan government and our international partners, have a responsibility to hold the Taliban and their sponsors accountable. The reason to pursue peace is to end this senseless violence. This is not peace, nor its beginnings,” NSA said.
“If the Taliban can not control the violence, or their sponsors have now subcontracted their terror to other entities —which was one of our primary concerns from the beginning— then their seems little point in continuing to engage Taliban in peace talks,” he added.
Armed men stormed a hospital in the western part of the Kabul at around 10:00am on Tuesday, where the medical charity Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres – MSF) runs a maternity clinic.
The 100-bed government-run facility is supported by Doctors Without Borders, which is also known by its French name Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
MoI in a press release said that three terrorists were killed and more than a hundred civilians were rescued by the security forces.
