Taliban Acts of Murder on the People of Afghanistan Continue

Taliban Acts of Murder on the People of Afghanistan Continue Kabul, Afghanistan (Feb. 20, 2012) - The commander of the International Security Assistance Force, Gen. John R. Allen, joins Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai in condemning the latest desperate acts of murder by insurgents. A vehicle-borne IED exploded when it rammed the 4th district police station today in Kandahar, killing two local policemen and wounding four innocent Afghan civilians. Yesterday, a roadside bomb killed four civilians, including a child, in Shah Wali Kot district in southern Kandahar province. This incident occurred when the vehicle in which the victims were traveling drove over the roadside bomb. "My sincere thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and injured in these attacks against the people of Afghanistan," said Allen. "On behalf of the coalition of 50 nations within ISAF, I send condolences to the loved ones concerned and pray for a swift recovery for the injured." "These incidents again show the insurgency's total disregard for the Afghan people and disdain for peace," said Allen. "The lack of concern for the peace and security of the Afghan people, and the continued killing of innocents, sends an obvious message by the insurgents -- the Taliban do not care who, or how many of their fellow Afghans are killed." These types of IED attacks against the people of Afghanistan also indicate an increasing concern by insurgents of a growing and capable Afghan police force, as these criminal acts are conducted from a distance to avoid certain capture. "The insurgents should be concerned - we, ISAF and ANSF together, will continue in our efforts to hold these murderers to account," said Allen. "We will not be deterred." ISAF continues to partner with the Afghan National Security Forces to thwart all acts of terror and build an increased security environment to protect the people of Afghanistan while promoting peace and stability throughout the country.
