Iran denounced as “irresponsible and unjustifiable” the recent deadly US airstrike on a hospital in the northern Afghan city of Kunduz which killed over 20 people. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham on Sunday offered condolences to the Afghan government and people, particularly the families of the victims, over the tragic incident, Press TV reported.  The medical aid group Doctors Without Borders, known by its French acronym the MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres), said in a statement on Saturday its trauma center in Kunduz was hit several times.

Afkham said violation of the basic rights of the oppressed Afghan people, who even have no safe treatment centers, is among the results of interfering policies of the United States and the US-led military alliance in Afghanistan.  “We hope that international bodies will seriously and decisively fulfill their duties and adopt necessary measures to prevent the reoccurrence of such incidents.”
