The Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) strongly condemns the terrorist bombing attack that targeted an educational center west of Kabul, Afghanistan, causing dozens of casualties.
ICESCO reiterates its emphatic rejection of such terrorist acts, perpetrated in violation of all international laws and conventions, which target educational institutions, thus jeopardizing the learning opportunities of many citizens. ICESCO stands by the right to educati on as a cardinal right guaranteed by the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights, adopted by virtue of the United Nations General Assembly Resolution on 16 December 1966.
While conveying its sincere condolences and expressing its sympathy for the victims’ families and the Afghan people, ICESCO reaffirms its support to Afghanistan, as an ICESCO Member State, in its endeavor to erase traces of this cowardly terrorist act. The Organization will also contribute to rebuilding the educational center and support schools to ensure the continuity of schooling.
