Civil Activists in West of Afghanistan: Recent Attacks in Kabul and Nangarhar Are Unforgivable Crimes

A number of political affairs analysts and civil society activists in west of the country call the recent attacks in Kabul and Nangarhar provinces unforgivable crimes, adding that killing of civilians by the parties involved in the war indicates a surge in violence and shows that they are not committed to starting the intra-Afghan talks.

In two recent heinous attacks in the capital Kabul and the eastern Nangarhar provinces on Tuesday, at least 37 civilians were killed and a total of 83 people were wounded.

So far, no group claimed responsibility for the recent appalling assaults in the country.

A number of political affairs activists in country’s western parts are confident that lack of coordination among security and political officials, weakness of the intelligence agency, and lack of a security mechanism are the main causes of scaled up terror attacks in Afghanistan.

Mohammad Rafiq Shaheer, head of Herat’s experts council, calls the latest deadly attacks troubling, saying that killing mothers and new born babies in the west of Kabul are considered unprecedented crimes and shows the culprits’ brutality.

Some western civil society activists, meanwhile, condemn the latest dead-dealing attacks, accusing the government of being reckless to bring security in the country.

Hassan Hakimi, an activist in the western Ghor province, told The Killid Group that a ramp up in hostilities has fostered a mistrust among people.

He reiterates that surging deadly attacks and suicide bombings has fostered inflexibilities for the start of intra-Afghan peace negotiations, and indicates that some inner political, international and anti-government parties would not like bringing peace in the country.

The recent attacks by the insurgents have shattered the Afghan people beliefs in better future.

Hameedullah Khadem, head of Herat’s chamber of mines and industry, says that the recent attacks in Kabul and Nangarhar provinces have frustrated Afghan people more than ever.

He warns a scale up in terror attacks in the country can lead to an economic crisis.

A number of residents in the western part of country, however, accuse the Afghan government for being the main perpetrators of the crimes against humanity in the capital and eastern province of Nangarhar.

These residents say they have been frustrated by the current security situation and expect the Afghan government to cut off hands of foreign spy networks and with a political and unitedly settlement fight against terrorism.

Following the attacks in Kabul and Nangarhar, Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani condemned the attacks in strongest terms and ordered the Afghan security and defense forces to shift from defensive position to active offensive position and resume their attacks against the Taliban militants.
