“Isis gunmen disguised as doctors kill more than 30 people in attack on military hospital in Kabul,” by Lizzie Dearden, Independent, March 7, 2017:
Militants disguised as doctors have killed more than 30 people in an attack on a military hospital near the US embassy in Kabul with bombs, grenades and guns.
Isis claimed responsibility for the assault on the Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan hospital as battles between jihadis and security forces continued on Wednesday, leaving at least 50 wounded.
The terrorist group, which is competing with the Taliban in Afghanistan, claimed its “commandos” had killed more than 100 people at the 400-bed facility for wounded soldiers.
Photos apparently taken by one of the militants showed him wearing a surgical mask and suit, while armed with a gun and machete.
Isis published a graphic image claiming to show the bodies of three medical staff lying on the hospital floor on its Amaq propaganda channel.
A suicide bomber blew himself up at the rear of the complex before three gunmen armed with automatic rifles and hand grenades entered through the breach.
The gunmen, dressed as medical personnel, had taken position on upper floors of the hospital and engaged special forces sent to the scene, officials said.
A worker at the hospital told Reuters he saw one gunman dressed in a white doctor’s coat take out a concealed AK-47 and open fire, killing at least one patient and one hospital worker.
Abdul Qadir also heard firing from several other parts of the hospital, which treats military casualties from around Afghanistan.
Security forces blocked off the area around the hospital, which sits near a busy road junction in the Afghan capital, and a second explosion was heard during battles.
General Dawlat Waziri, a spokesperson for the Afghan defence ministry, said government troops had taken full control of the facility after several hours of fighting.
He said there “more than 30 killed and more than 50 wounded” at the hospital, which is the largest military clinic in Afghanistan.
It lies across the road from the heavily fortified US embassy and around the corner from the Afghan Supreme Court, emphasising warnings by government officials that high-profile attacks in Kabul are likely to escalate this year.
President Ashraf Ghani confirmed the assault during a speech to mark International Women’s Day, saying: “There is an ongoing terrorist attack in a hospital which tramples all human values.
“In all religions, a hospital is regarded as an immune site and attacking it is attacking the whole of Afghanistan.”…
