A group of terrorists have attacked Kabul University’s campus.
While disclosing this on Monday November 2, 2020, a senior Afghan government source noted that not less than 10 students were killed in the attack.
Eyewitnesses explained that the terrorists targeted students and fired shots at them as they fled the Afghan capital.
“They were shooting at every student they saw,” Fathullah Moradi, an eyewitness, said.
He said he managed to escape through one of the university’s gates with a group of friends.
Witnesses said the attack followed an explosion in the area.
“At least 10 killed, many others wounded,” a senior government official told reporters on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to media.
“The enemies of Afghanistan, the enemies of education… have entered Kabul University,” Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian told reporters.
“The security forces are in the area trying to control the situation. They are advancing carefully to prevent any harm to the students,” he added.
A student, Fraidoon Ahmadi, who spoke about the attack narrated that “We were studying inside our classrooms when suddenly we heard a burst of gunfire inside the university.”
“Some university students have fled… it is chaotic and students are terrified,” he added.
