Following an attack on an office of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, which killed an ICRC staff member, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) today strongly condemned violence against humanitarian workers and facilities.

“MSF calls on all parties to the conflict in Afghanistan to respect humanitarian workers as well as medical facilities, which must remain safe and neutral,” said Brice de le Vingne, MSF director of operations.

MSF’s thoughts are with the family of the victim and with our ICRC colleagues.
