Babies and other citizens killed in two separate attacks in Afghanistan

At least 2 babies and 11 mothers and nurses have been assassinated as a gunman who attacked a hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Afghan officials said that another 15 people, including children, were wounded in the incident that took place at Dasht-e-Barchi hospital on Tuesday morning.

International medical charity and Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF) run part of the hospital. Some foreigners are also working there.

On the other hand, at least 24 people have been killed in an attack at a police funeral. Several people were wounded as well in that attack.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

A spokesman for the Mangahar provincial government said that number of deaths could increase in the incident at the funeral.

A statement has been issued through the Foreign Office in which Pakistan strongly condemned the “inhuman and cowardly terrorist attack on a medical facility in Kabul and suicide attack on a funeral in Nangarhar”.

“These terrorist acts are particularly despicable as they take place in the holy month of Ramazan and at a time when Afghanistan is grappling with Covid-19 pandemic,”

“We extend heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families of victims and prayers for early recovery for those injured. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the Afghan people in this hour of grief.

“Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, and will continue to support a peaceful and stable Afghanistan.”

At least 6 people, including 2 policemen and 4 civilians, have died when a clashed took place during the distribution of food aid. Officials say that the clash occurred between the protestors and security forces.
