Iran condemns US airstrike on Afghanistan’s Kunduz hospital

The attack on the medical facility belonging to Doctors without Borders is irresponsible and unjustifiable, Afkham said.

Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham has strongly condemned Saturday’s airstrikes by the US on a hospital in Afghanistan’s Kunduz province which resulted in death and injury of dozens of innocent civilians, including women and children.

“This attack is irresponsible and unjustifiable,” Afkham said condemning the US-led coalition attack on the Kunduz hospital.

“Ignoring the basic rights of the oppressed people of Afghanistan for whom even treatment centers are not safe is a result of the interfering approaches of the US and the coalition,” the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman added.

Reiterating the importance of restoration of tranquility and security in the neighboring Afghanistan for the Islamic Republic of Iran, Afkham went on to say, “We hope that international bodies will seriously and resolutely fulfill their duties and take all the necessary measures to prevent the repeat of such incidents (in the future).”
