UNAMA condemned Taliban for incidents in which civilians have been deliberately targeted.
“There can be absolutely no justification for deliberate or indiscriminate attacks against civilians,” said Tadamichi Yamamoto, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan.
“The main victims of the attack were Afghans,” said Yamamoto, who is also the head of UNAMA.
“It is particularly egregious that a premeditated act of extreme violence was conducted against a development agency where civilians were striving to improve the lives of all citizens.”
An earlier suicide attack by Taliban on the eve of Ramadan against the Afghan National Police headquarters in Pul-e-Khumri, Baghlan province, caused many civilian casualties, with women and children among the injured.
In a separate incident, Taliban attacked a non-governmental organization in Kabul, which killed 6 civilians and injured more than 28 others.
On Monday, CEO Abdullah said during the council ministers meeting that the government wants ceasefire but the Taliban insist on continuing the war.
“The Afghan people expected a ceasefire in Ramadan month, but unfortunately Taliban have not agreed yet,” he added.
