KABUL, Afghanistan, December 16, 2014 – ISAF joins
President Obama, President Ashraf Ghani, Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz
Sharif and the international community in condemning today’s attack on a
school in Peshawar, Pakistan.
The Taliban has taken
responsibility for the attack that murdered over one-hundred innocent
school students and left scores more wounded and injured.
barbaric actions of the Taliban illustrate their lack of value for human
life and lack of respect for the Islamic faith. These attacks only
prove their selfish desire for power and willingness to murder to reach
their self-serving goals.
ISAF expresses its condolences to the
families of those killed and wounded in today's attack. We are confident
that the Pakistani authorities will work tirelessly to seek justice for
the families and hold those behind the attack accountable for their
