(Last Updated On: August 8, 2016)

People___08_08_2016_DARI_SOT.mpg_snapshot_00.01_[2016.08.08_18.39.25]The bereaved families of Kabul twin bombings victims has called for an international probe not by the government’s fact-findings commission.

The families say the investigation of the fact-finding commission is not acceptable for them and the National Unity Government (NUG) does not have the ability to provide justice and identify the perpetrators of the bombings.

The family of a victim named, Jamila who lost the father of her children and is the sole bread winner of her family says the continuation of life with two children and in absence of her husband makes her faces many difficulties.

“My husband killed on the way of justice, not the war and violence. We demand a neutral team to investigate the issue and we do not want to hide the blood of our victims,” said Jamila.

Meanwhile, the victim families stressed that they will continue to their justice demands as long as the incident is not seriously investigates.

In a late night television address following the attack, Ghani promised: “I will get revenge on those who shed the blood of our citizens. Our enemies, by attacking civil liberties, think that they can divide us. But they will fail.”

A peaceful protest that drew thousands of people to the Afghan capital has become the target of at least two explosions, leaving at least 80 people dead and more than 231 wounded.

The blasts came as thousands of people gathered to demand a 500 kV power line, linking power from Turkmenistan to Afghanistan, be routed through the central province of Bamiyan.

Responsibility for the attack was claimed by Islamic State via the group’s news agency, Amaq.

The attack, the deadliest in Kabul since 2001, has raised fears of an intensification in sectarian conflict.

Since Afghanistan’s civil war in the 1990s Afghanistan has largely been spared the sectarian violence that plagues neighboring Pakistan, as well as Iraq and Syria, where ISIS has deliberately tried to stoke ethnic tensions.
