News: ISAF condemns murderous insurgent attacks
KABUL, Afghanistan -- The International Security Assistance Force joins the Afghan Ministry of the Interior in expressing condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed and injured as a result of today's improvised explosive device attack in the Paghman district of Kabul province.
"The placement of this IED was clearly intended to indiscriminately murder innocent civilians during the holy month of Ramazan. This act clearly demonstrates the insurgents' lack of concern for the people of Afghanistan and their desire for peace and security for themselves, their families, and their nation," said Brig. Gen. Günter Katz, ISAF spokesman. "I offer my prayers and condolences to the families of those killed and wounded in this tragic event."
Additionally, ISAF condemns this morning's vehicle-borne IED attack outside a coalition base in Logar province, which failed to cause any significant damage to the base, but did result in the severe injury of a number of innocent Afghan civilians. The civilians have all been transferred to medical facilities for treatment.
"These inhumane attacks targeted and harmed Afghan civilians. They are two more examples of the insurgency's destructive, vicious disregard for the Afghan people and the adverse effects their actions are having on individual and national progress," Katz said.
