Condemnation of Terror Attack against the Seyed-ol-Shohada School in Kabul
Condemnation of Terror Attack against the...
Sadly we heard the news that on 8 May that in a terror attack against Seyed-ol-Shohada girls school in the western district of Kabul more than 85 people were killed and 147 left injured. Most of the dead and injured were children and parents, which took place through a vehicle bombing as the students were leaving school and also the explosion of two mines.
Investigations show that the recent political and international events and the presence of foreign forces in the country have resulted in the growth of extremism and the influence of violent groups in Afghanistan, to an extent that in the recent months many civilians have been killed or injured in various terror attacks, and the comprehensive peace process in this country has faced a lot of problems.
Years of occupation, war and internal conflict in Afghanistan has resulted in many people to leave their homes and many have become internally displaced. The continuation of the current process not only result in no inclination of Afghan refugees and asylum-seekers to return to their country, but will result in more Afghans wanting to leave their country. It is an issue which imposes pain and suffering on the people and also puts more pressure on international organizations and other countries.
While strongly condemning these inhuman attacks the ODVV expresses its deepest sympathy with the Afghan government and the victims’ families and calls upon the Afghan government and international organizations, especially the UN to take serious steps towards the spread of peace and security in this country and to set conditions for comprehensive dialogue among all groups and factions in the country. We believe hat with the creation of the participation of all ethnic groups in Afghanistan and sustainable peace, to return and shine a hope for permanent peace and stability to the country.
In the hope for a lasting peace for Afghanistan…
