While Afghanistan bleeds, US General claims to win Afghan war

KABUL - The top US commander in Afghanistan and the commander of the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission General John Nicholson in reaction to the deadly Kabul attack has said that the enemies of Afghanistan cannot win.

In a statement released in the aftermath of the attack, Gen. Nicholson said “We condemn in the strongest terms possible the cowardly attacks in Kabul today by two suicide bombers that killed and injured Afghan forces and innocent Afghan citizens, including Afghan journalists.”

Gen. Nicholson further added that “We offer our sincere condolences to the families of those killed and wounded, and we sand with our Afghan partners in defeating those who would threaten the peopel of this country, whose cries for peace are being ignored.”

The NATO commander also added that “Make no mistake, the enemies of Afghanistan cannot win. Actions like this only strengthen or steadfast commitment to the people of Afghanistan.”

This comes as back to back explosions rocked the capital Kabul earlier today amid reports the ISIS loyalists have claim responsibility behind the attack.

The Ministry of Interior and Kabul police confirm that that the successive suicide attacks in Kabul have left at least 25 dead and 45 others wounded.

The Ministry of Public Health officials had earlier said at least 21 people have been killed and 40 people wounded during the explosions have been shifted to the hospitals.
