KABUL: Afghani people on Friday slammed the government over "security entities failure" to check terrorist activities and protect ordinary citizens in the wake of bloody attack on Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan Hospital in Kabul that claimed 30 lives.

"Believe me I have lost the hope for future. The terrorists even do not spare hospital, the patients or the doctors. The terrorists' indiscriminate attacks usually claim the lives of ordinary people," Xinhua quoted Kabul resident Ghulam Dastgir as saying.

At least 30 persons were killed and 70 injured when three explosions rocked Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan military hospital on Wednesday.

The attack on hospital, which is located in the fortified Wazir Akbar Khan district next to US embassy and many more diplomatic missions in broad daylight, has raised questions among Afghans whether the Afghan security apparatus are able to curb terror networks.

However, deputy to defence ministry, Mohammad Radmanish has said that the case of attack on hospital requires more investigation to know how the terrorists penetrated into the military hospital.
