In a statement, the organization said that it “condemns in the strongest possible terms the horrific bombing of its hospital in Kunduz full of staff and patients”.
Afghan forces were going from house to house hunting for remaining Taliban insurgents in Kunduz Friday, days after the stunning fall of the northern city as militant offensives gained momentum in neighbouring provinces.
Six US airmen were among 13 people killed early Friday when an American C-130 transport plane crashed while taking off in Afghanistan, a USA military official said.
In a statement, Doctors Without Borders, which is also known as Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), said that its trauma center in Kunduz came under “sustained bombing”, and was very badly damaged.
Meanwhile North Atlantic Treaty Organisation coalition spokesman Colonel Brian Tribus confirmed that collateral damage to a medical facility.
A few people injured during the fighting were too afraid of Taliban attack to leave their homes and go to hospital, he said, adding that food was running short and there was no electricity.
The Clovis man, one of five civilians killed in Thursday’s C-130J transport plane crash in eastern Afghanistan, left a wife, Tammy, and three children, said JoLynn Lusk, a family friend.
Since fighting broke out on Monday, MSF has treated 394 wounded, the organization said.
Abdul Manan said insurgents took up loudspeakers in Kunduz and chanted “Allah u Akbar”, or “God is great”, and “Long live the Islamic Emirate”-the term the Taliban use to describe their vision of Afghanistan”.
Wahidullah Mayar, spokesman for the Public Health Ministry, tweeted that 37 people were wounded, among them 24 medical and non-medical staff.
However eyewitnesses say most of the city now appears to be under government control, despite resistance.
But there has been an escalation in air strikes by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in recent months despite the drawdown.
A doctor who worked in hospital while talking worldwide media claimed that operation theater and emergency room were totally destroyed in air raid. Reports are that numerous 500 Taliban soldiers who were braced to defend their holding from a counterattack are either dead or have retreated from the city.
MSF says the number of its staff killed has risen to nine, from three.
US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces ended their combat mission in Afghanistan last December, though a 13,000-strong residual force remains for training and counter-terrorism operations.
