KABUL, Afghanistan – United States Special Representatives for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad says “terrorist perpetrators are not only against education but are pro-ignorance”, after gunmen stormed Kabul University Monday morning that lasted for six hours.

Kabul University attack killed at least 19 people and wounded further 22, mostly young students.

“The terrorist perpetrators are not just against education but are pro-ignorance,” said Khalilzad in a tweet. “They want to breed chaos and instability, terror and poverty. They oppose and fear peace and seek a permanent state of war.”

Peace envoy said the attack claimed by ISIS was “horrendous”, adding “barbaric attack is NOT an opportunity for the government and the Taliban to score points against each other.

“There is a common enemy here,” he said.”

Khalilzad urged all warring parties to “unite for peace, find a path to a ceasefire, and accelerate a political settlement.”

The Afghan government announced Tuesday, November 3, a national day of mourning across the country to honor the victims of terrorist attack on Kabul University.

The Afghan national flag will fly at half-mast across the country and at all diplomatic missions around the world.
