Kabul (BNA) As a result of the explosion of Taliban planted mine in a village in Mian Nushin district, Kandahar province 4 children lost their lives and also Taliban firing on an infant and her mother killed them day before yesterday. Committing these heinous and inhumane crimes, Taliban once again made it clear that they are fighting against the people and children of this country.
BNA commentator who closely follows military incidents writes:
Four children lost their lives and two other wounded as a result of a blast in Zeento village, Mian Nushin district, Kandahar province.
The security authorities of that province confirming the incident said, it was a remote controlled bomb consciously targeted the innocent children. In a similar incident a 12 year old boy was killed in Kuner province. What had happened in Mian Nushin and Kuner have been occurred again and again in the past, these brutal and barbaric crimes clearly show that the brutality and mercilessness of Taliban knows no any border for reaching their evil goals. Suicide attack on small aged peddlers in Wazir Akbar Khan, Kabul city which killed six children, firing on two children in Ghazni because their father was an officer of national police, assassinating a 12 year old child in Panjway district Kandahar province whose brother served as a member of police, executing a child in Helmand province accused for spying for state forces, suicide attack in central Baghlan which led to the martyrdom of some parliament members and tens of students and other criminal incidents among them roadside planting mines which mostly take the lives of civilians are among notorious acts of Taliban are carried out in instruction of their bosses living on the other side of Afghan borders. Committing such crimes, notorious Taliban try to create fear and intimidation among people. Using a scuffling and tense situation, they try to exploit the people and to continue their inhumane political life.
Shamefully, Taliban carry out such heinous and evil acts in name of Islam, while the great prophet of Islam says those who torture children are not among my followers. Meanwhile international community establishing international conventions insists on observing the rights of children especially during the war time. Ignoring all these, Taliban are continuing their barbaric deeds in instruction of their foreign masters, this proves that they have no any other job but killing Afghans.
According to the reports released by prestigious international organizations, Taliban were responsible for 90% casualties among civilians. While Taliban ruthlessly use improvised explosive device against people, Afghanistan has signed Ottawa convention which bans producing, selling, purchasing and importing such fatal materials. Joining to Ottawa convention indicates that Afghanistan gives high value to the life of mankind and the safety of its nationals while armed oppositions act contrary to that.
