ISAF slams Taliban for Indiscriminate attacks

ISAF slams Taliban for Indiscriminate attacks

May 11, 2012 - 12:14

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) on Friday strongly denounced the death of several Afghans citizens in a roadside bombing in southern Helmand province.

The roadside bomb was detonated by remote control in Musulmanai area of Musa Qala district on Thursday, killing seven civilians, including five children and a woman.

Last week, the Talibaninfo-icon announced the start of theirn Al-Farouq spring offensive, noting that their top priority would be "safeguarding the lives and wealth of civilians”.

 But their actions continued to say otherwise, the NATOinfo-icon-led force said in a statement, calling their latest use of the improvised explosive device an act of cowardice.

The 50-nation force blamed the insurgents for 449 civilian causalities so far during the current year. “The Afghan people must continue to reject this barbarism; the killing of Afghanistaninfo-icon’s future; its children, the closing of schools, and the abuse of womeninfo-icon.”
