(Yoshita Singh)United Nations, Aug 27 (PTI) The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Friday strongly condemned the attacks by ISIL-K near Kabul airport. More than 100 people died in these attacks. The council is currently being chaired by India.

The Council emphasized the importance of combating terrorism in Afghanistan by ensuring that its soil is not used to threaten or attack any country. This information was given in a statement.

On Thursday, two suicide bombers exploded outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, killing more than 100 people, including 13 American soldiers.

The Islamic State affiliate in Afghanistan, known as the Islamic State Khorasan or ISIS-K, has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The council said in a statement that its members “condemn in the strongest terms the reprehensible attack” near the airport in Kabul on Thursday.

Dozens of civilian casualties, including children and soldiers, were reported in the attack by the Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISKP), an organization affiliated with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Daesh), it said.

During India’s presidency in this powerful 15-member UN organization, two statements have been issued in the media on the situation in Afghanistan, while one statement has also been given on ISIS.

The council held two sessions this month on Afghanistan that were not on its original agenda. The sessions were held amid dire circumstances in the wake of the Taliban’s capture of Kabul and the withdrawal of US forces from the war-torn country.

The council underscored the need to hold the perpetrators, organisers, financiers and sponsors of “these reprehensible acts of terrorism” accountable and bring them to justice. “The deliberate targeting of civilian personnel and those helping civilians to evacuate is particularly despicable and must be condemned,” the council said.

“The members of the Security Council emphasized the importance of combating terrorism in Afghanistan by ensuring that the territory of Afghanistan is not used to threaten or attack any country and any Afghan group,” the statement said. Or the person should not support terrorists operating from the soil of another country.”
