Islamic Emirate: Kandahar-Helmand highway re-opened for civilians for 20 days


Post via Islamic Emirate

For the past week the main highway stretching from Helmand capital Lashkargah towards Kandahar was completely closed-off by Mujahideen to tighten the city’s siege and totally choke enemy resupply.

Even though a secondary rout was opened for civilian use but due to repeated requests by locals that large vehicles were unable to utilize the road and their basic needs could not be delivered, the main highway to Lashkargah has been reopened for civilian use this morning for a period of 15-20 days. Following this expiry date, the highway will once again be cut and all traffic completely banned from its use, Allah willing.

On these basis, all ordinary citizens of Lashkargah and visitors from other areas are requested to satisfy all their needs within this 20-day time frame because once this highway is closed – due to the possibility of major combat taking place – it will not be re-opened for any reason to anyone.
