SOT, Peer Mohammad, victim's relative (Pashto): "We call on all sides of the conflict especially on the US to stop the war in Afghanistan and leave the Afghan people for a normal life. We call on the US to abandon their wrong position in Afghanistan, as this war will never have benefits for the US too, because they will be receiving coffins too."
