USFOR-A marks second anniversary of Peshawar school attack, reaffirms commitment
17 Dec 2016
KABUL, Afghanistan (Dec. 17, 2016) — Dec. 16 marked the second anniversary of the horrendous attack on the Peshawar Army Public School, which killed more than 130 children.
In July, a U.S. strike killed the mastermind of the attack, Umar Khalifa. Although his death will not bring back the victims, we remember those who lost family and friends.
We will continue to stand with all those who join the common fight against terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
