Six people, including a Japanese doctor, Tetsu Nakamura, who died in support of the Afghan people, were killed in an attack. The attack took place in Jalalabad, the capital of Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, according to a British news agency Reuters report. This was recently the second deadliest attack on aid volunteers and has been responded to internationally as well as from Afghanistan. 73-year-old Tetsu Nakamura was head of Peace Japan Medical Services and has been operating in the region since 1980 when he started treating leprosy patients in Peshawar and the suburbs of Pakistan. On his death, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s spokesman Ataullah Khogyani said in a statement that Tetsu Nakamura was a close friend of Afghanistan, who devoted their lives to helping and helping our people. The spokesman added that those killed along with Japanese doctor Tetsu Nakamura in the attack included their security guards, driver and a colleague.

Reports say that a few days ago, a United Nations aid volunteer was killed in a bomb blast in Kabul, and relief organizations were on high alert. On November 24, Anil Raj, affiliated with the United Nations Development Program in Afghanistan, was killed when his vehicle was hit. A statement from the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan in response to the Japanese doctor’s death in the attack on Wednesday echoed an emotional response. The statement said it was an act of violence against a man who devoted his life to helping the vulnerable people of Afghanistan. About the incident Mitsuji Fukumoto, an official affiliated with Tetsu Nakamura’s organization, said we did not know what was behind the attack, whether it was just a robbery or a conflict of interests.

About the incident, a Jalalabad resident said he heard firing at 8am and saw that the gunmen were attacking Japanese and his security guard and then fled an alley. A white cabin containing a large cabin could be seen in the available photos of the location one side of the window was damaged by firing while the window screen had 3 bullets. The Taliban, on the other hand, denied responsibility for the incident, saying they had good relations with the organization that was participating in the reconstruction work in Afghanistan.

Who was Tetsu Nakamura?

Tetsu Nakamura was known for his relief work in Japan for decades. His associates founded several eminent organizations in Peshawar and have been based and operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan since 1984. In 2003, he was awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Peace and International Services from the Philippines, also known as the Nobel Prize for Asia. Tetsu Nakamura, a Pashtun clothing fanatic, was a strong opponent of the Afghan war launched by the US against the Taliban government in 2001 and considered the Taliban to be the organizers.

This includes the construction and medical services of canals and wells for irrigation. Tetsu Nakamura, often found in Pashtun clothing, came to Pakistan in the northwest of Pakistan in 1984 to treat leprosy Afghan refugees.
