AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: A member of Meshrano Jirga (Senate), Gul Ahmad Azimi has claimed that regional intelligence agencies and certain elements within the system were involved in the Wednesday’s deadly attack on Sardar Muhammad Daud Khan Hospital in Kabul.
He said that infiltration of terrorists in highly-guarded hospital was never possible without internal support, provided to certain elements, calling to be unmasked.
The attack has sparked major controversy and several questions have been given birth across the country over the infiltration of terrorists.
Moreover, the Meshrano Jirga has taken initiative of hearing from the security officials next week about last week’s insurgents’ attack on military hospital in Kabul.
Senators would also hear testimony over the ongoing threats facing the nation from terrorism following a series of deadly attacks in the capital city over the past few weeks.
This comes after the Wolesi Jirga (lower house of parliament) has questioned the security officials over the attack on the military hospital, but the summoning of the security officials was later postponed till Monday.
“In the view of the importance of this issue, we will convene the meeting tomorrow (Monday). We hope to see the majority of the members in attendance,” said speaker of the parliament Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi.
“In the attack, outstanding generals, doctors and youths were killed and it is very difficult to fill their gaps. People need answers about this,” said senator, Gulalai Akbari.
“We expect the government to inform the people about the realities behind the incident. We have tasked the security and defense commission to follow the case and raise it in the Tuesday session of the house,” said senator, Fazel Hadi Muslimyar.
This comes as a repetition of the past when the Afghan parliament summoned the security officials over security lapses in the country.
Some MPs argue that the nepotism by some lawmakers about the impeachment of security officials is hindering the legislative body to contribute something positive in the fragile security climate of the country.
The responsibility of the deadly and shocking terrorist attack on military hospital in Kabul has taken by the loyalists of the Islamic State (IS), commonly known as Daesh.
