TEHRAN, Mar. 08 (MNA) – Foreign Ministry spokesperson has condemned a terrorist attack on a Kabul hospital on Wednesday.

Mr. Bahram Ghasemi also offered condolences to the families of victims as well as Afghan government and condemned the terrorist act as a cruel act against humanity.

“Collective action and a global consensus should address terrorism through depriving them of their material and spiritual support,” Ghasemi said in his official response to the event.

“The attack claimed by the Islamic State group on the Sardar Daud Khan hospital leaves 50 wounded. Gunmen dressed as doctors stormed Afghanistan's largest military hospital on Wednesday, killing more than 30 people in a six-hour attack claimed by the Islamic State group as it makes inroads into the war battered country.

Around 50 were wounded in the assault on the Sardar Daud Khan hospital, with explosions and gunfire rattling Kabul's diplomatic district as dense clouds of smoke rose in the sky,” wrote The Hindu website.
