“Gunmen disguised as medical people stormed a military hospital near the US Embassy in Kabul on Wednesday, killing at least 30 people in a six-hour raid before Afghan security forces killed the attackers”, authorities said.”The ISIS-affiliated” news agency Amaq said. The terror group claimed responsibility for the attack near Kabul’s heavily fortified diplomatic quarter. “First, a suicide bomber blew himself up at the south gate to the Sardar Mohammed Daud Khan hospital. Known as “the 400-bed hospital, it’s the country’s biggest and best-equipped medical facility. Three gunmen then invaded the hospital, made their way to the second and third floors and opened fire, Sediqqi said. Among those killed were Afghan military guards recovering from battle wounds, doctors and hospital employees. Security forces and police mounted a counter offensive. Heavily armed soldiers and armored vehicles surrounded the factory, a helicopter landed on the roof and a few patients were able to climb out of the windows and they stood on a ledge to escape the violence. Soldiers killed the attackers about 3:30 p.m. (6 a.m. Wednesday ET) after six hours of fighting. As soldiers cleared the building, they discovered bodies and the number of casualties quickly grew. “More than 50 people were wounded and taken to the Wazir Akbar Khan hospital,” said Smael Kawosi, “Media relation officer for the Ministry of Health. It’s not known whether any security guards or police officers were killed.” Officials say this may happen again and we have to be ready for anything because they will strike again.
