The family members of Zainab Musavi and Suhaila, the two young women who killed in a blast on Saturday, said on Tuesday that the recent attacks on civilians--particularly on the young and educated--are being carried out in a deliberate way.
They criticized the government for not identifying those responsible for the crimes.
Both victims started school together as little girls, became friends as adolescents and completed their university studies together as well. Zainab was 26 and Suhaila was 25.
“They were friends for twelve years, they were very close to each other, we had family relations,” said Fatima, the mother of Suhaila.
“How long will this bloodshed continue? May God bless us with peace,” said Hussnia, the mother of Zaiban.
“No one is there to hear our voice, no one is there to come and respond to us, why should they (civilians) be killed?" said Ghulam Reza, father of Suhaila.
“Everyday explosions target cars, minivans and busses, why are our educated youths being killed?” said Assadullah Musavi, father of Zainab.
Zainab was expected to travel to Japan for her master's degree in the near future.
In recent weeks, at least 10 attacks have targeted civilians in the western part of Kabul.
Two explosions hit civilian cars in Kabul on Saturday killing at least 6 people and wounding 7 more.
No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack.
