Condemning today’s suicide attack in eastern Afghanistan’s Kunar province that killed 11 civilians and injured more than 30 others, the United Nations Assistance Mission in the country (UNAMA) reiterated that indiscriminate use of explosives in areas crowded by civilians is a serious violation of international humanitarian law.
According to the Mission, earlier this morning in Asadabad city, in front of the Provincial Governor’s office, a suicide attacker detonated his vehicle full of explosives, causing more than 40 civilian casualties.
Reiterating that the indiscriminate use of explosives in areas crowded by civilians is a serious violation of international humanitarian law, the Mission reminded all parties to the armed conflict in Afghanistan that they are bound to uphold their legal obligations to at all times avoid harm to civilians.
The Mission extended its sincere condolences to the families of those killed and a speedy recovery for those injured. “UNAMA once again affirms its continued support to the people of Afghanistan,” said the Mission.
