Press Release

Armed attack on Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul City

The AIHRC severely condemns the armed attack on Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul city which resulted in Killing and wounding of a number of civilians and expresses deep concern about increase of terroristic attack on public places.

Attacks on civilian establishments and public places is considered a savage, inhumane and illegal action contrary to the sacred religion of Islam, international humanitarian laws and national laws.

The AIHRC seriously demands the anti-state armed oppositions to refrain from targeting civilian establishments and public places, respect international humanitarian laws and not to commit further war crimes and human rights violations.

The AIHRC requests the IRA, justice and judicial as well as security organs to identify the perpetrators of this incident and bring them under legal prosecution and do not refrain from any efforts for security and protection of the civilians.
