KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistaninfo-icon strongly condemned the horrific attack claimed by ISIS-K terrorists at the Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground yesterday afternoon, according to a statement. 

“We recognize in particular the bravery and sacrifice of the police officers and other security forces who were killed and wounded as they prevented even more bloodshed,” the statement said. 

It added the spirit of cricket was one of friendly competition and athletic skill, and this bombing was a brazen and nihilistic attempt to deny the peaceful aspirations of Afghan societyinfo-icon.

The United States would continue to work with Afghan government and the Afghan people to stop terrorism from claiming innocent lives. 

As President Trump recently said, “America and our partners are committed to stripping terrorists of their territory, cutting off their funding, and exposing the false allure of their evil ideology.  Terrorists who slaughter innocent people will find no glory in this life or the next.  They are nothing but thugs and criminals,” according to the embassy statement.
