Comment by the Information and Press Department on the ISIS attack on the Jalalabad prison


  • en-GB1 ru-RU1

We strongly condemn the attack on a prison in Jalalabad in eastern Afghanistan by militants of the international terrorist group ISIS, which killed at least 29 people on August 3.

This attack, like the recent attacks on civilians in crowded places in other Afghan cities, indicates that ISIS continues to pose a serious threat to security in Afghanistan and is a major destabilising factor in the region.

We call on the Afghan authorities and the command of the US and NATO forces deployed there to take targeted, coordinated and comprehensive action to destroy any strongholds of ISIS in Afghanistan.
