Afghanistan: Statement by the Spokesperson on the attack against Kabul military hospital

02.11.2021
Brussels

A terrorist attack was carried out on Tuesday against the Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan military hospital in Kabul, resulting in at least 25 dead and many wounded inside the hospital.

Attacking a hospital is illegal under international law, goes against fundamental human rights and is a grave breach of Islamic values. The perpetrators of this despicable crime must be brought to justice.

Continued terrorist attacks in Afghanistan are a serious obstacle to peace and security. The European Union remains committed to peace and stability in Afghanistan and to supporting its people, including through stepped-up, safe delivery of humanitarian assistance to Afghans in need.
