17 Oct 2017
KABUL, Afghanistan — Resolute Support strongly condemns the attack on the Afghan National Police Headquarters and training facility in Gardez city, Paktia province today.
As the training day began, insurgents detonated two large vehicle borne improvised explosive devices in the vicinity of the ANP Headquarters and training facility, causing numerous ANP and civilian casualties.
"Today’s attack by the Taliban, targeting the ANP, once again shows their complete disregard for the safety of the Afghan people and the stability of Afghanistan,” said General John Nicholson, commander, Resolute Support. "We will remember those martyred and pray for a swift recovery for those injured. We will remain firm in standing with the Afghan security forces and people in their fight against terrorism.”
No coalition casualties have been reported.
