The Kabul regime soldiers have been carrying out an indiscriminate military campaign in Pul-e-Khumri district’s Dand-e-Ghori area, Baghlan province, for the past 25 days. They have only faced stiff Mujahideen resistance, heavy casualties and losses upon entering the area.
Having faced repeated defeats, they enemy is systematically shelling residential areas, demolishing homes and even mosques and killing civilians.
Amidst this genocidal operation the enemy has also destroyed electricity pylons and cut power to the capital Kabul.
These crimes against civilians are still ongoing unabated and the phase of demolishing homes has now reached mosques. 17000 families have been displaced in this biting cold and their lives put at extreme risk due to the use of heavy weaponry by the enemy. According to tribal elders and civil society activists, some 800 civilians have either been killed or injured in the ground and rocket attacks of the enemy. These statistics are increasing by the day and the enemy has continued demolishing more homes and other infrastructure.
The Islamic Emirate strongly condemns this crime of the defeated enemy and calls on international organizations, humanitarian groups and the media to turn their attention towards the tragedy in Baghlan, prevent the killing of civilians and demolition of their property, break their silence about the enemy brutality and develop a sense of responsibility.
