Five women and seven children were among those killed and 11 children are among those wounded.

The AIHRC condemned the attacks and called for an immediate action to stop targeting civilians, training centers and public infrastructures.

“The perpetrators will be held accountable for their actions at any time and under any circumstances,” the AIHRC said.
