EJC mourns the loss of Afghans and Americans after Kabul airport terror attack

The European Jewish Congress (EJC) has expressed its deepest condolences after some 90 Afghan civilians, including women and children, and 13 American soldiers were killed in a terrorist attack outside the gates of Kabul airport yesterday.

“This was a cowardly attack on Afghans fleeing for their lives, and on American servicemen who were involved in a humanitarian act of trying to help Afghan civilians who worked with the allied forces for a better Afghanistan, escape the country.” Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the EJC, said. “We mourn the loss of all of these lives and pray that there will be no more lives lost in this terrible and tragic situation.”
