Pakistan condemns multiple bomb attacks in Jalalabad

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan on Monday strongly condemned the multiple terrorist bomb attacks in Jalalabad on the 100th Independence Day of Afghanistan, the Dispatch News Desk (DND) news agency reported.

Reportedly 66 persons sustained injuries earlier in the morning when a series of blasts rocked Jalalabad, the Capital of Afghanistan’s Eastern Nangarhar Province.

In a statement, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said that these cowardly attacks manifest the desperation of terrorist outfits and spoilers as hopes for peace, stability and national unity in Afghanistan have grown stronger by the day.

Dr Faisal said that Pakistan remains a steadfast partner of Afghanistan, in the joint efforts to defeat all designs aimed at perpetuating instability in the region.

“We continue to firmly stand together with the Afghan nation in these testing times,” the Spokesperson said.

“We also pray for the early recovery of dozens of people reportedly injured in today’s attacks.”
