Deliberate acts of violence against healthcare facilities, including hospitals and related personnel, are violate international humanitarian law and constitute war crimes.
That didn’t stop the attack on a maternity hospital in a Shiite neighborhood in Kabuul. ISIS militants have been attacking the Shiite minority in Afghanistan repeatedly over the past few years. Twenty-four people died in that attack.
ISIS is also suspected of three attacks in April in Iraq, in Kirkuk and Diyala provinces.
