Dawlat Waziri, spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Defense confirms that more than 30 people were killed and more than 50 injured today when attackers dressed in medical uniforms stormed a military hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan.
The six-hour siege ended with four attackers dead at the Sardar Mohammed Daud Khan hospital, the biggest and best-equipped facility in the country. One suicide bomber died at the hospital’s south gate, and three armed assailants were killed inside the hospital.
The facility, known locally as the “400 bed” hospital, is only a few hundred meters from the US embassy and the diplomatic quarter of Kabul. The injured were taken to the Wazir Akbar Khan hospital.
