Jeddah, December 06, 2022, SPA -- The Secretariat General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemns in the strongest terms the deplorable bombing on 06 December 2022 against a government bus carrying employees of a petroleum company in Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital city of Balkh province in northern Afghanistan.
The grisly bombing, the latest in a series of deadly blasts, has reportedly resulted in the death of seven petroleum company employees aboard the bus and left many innocent civilians injury.
The Secretariat General reaffirms the steadfast position of the OIC on the imperative need to hold the perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of such reprehensible acts of terrorism accountable and bring them to justice.
Stomping out terrorism in Afghanistan, the General Secretariat reasserted, is an essential requisite for the political stabilization of the violence-plagued country, without which hardly any social or economic development could be achievable.
The Secretariat General expresses its genuine sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, and wishes a speedy and full recovery to those who were injured.
