France was horrified to learn of the ongoing attack against a military hospital in the center of Kabul.
The attack has already left a large number of people dead and injured.
Attacking a hospital is a heinous crime that demonstrates the barbarity that the Afghan authorities are facing.
France pays tribute to the courage and professionalism of the Afghan security forces which managed to evacuate the vast majority of the patients and are still involved in efforts to defeat the terrorists.
It extends its condolences to the victims’ families and to the International Committee of the Red Cross. We reaffirm our support for the Afghan authorities in the fight against terrorism.
