Afghanistan: 36,000 families displaced in last 4 months, says MoRR

Kabul: Amid the advances of Taliban, Afghanistan's Ministry of Repatriation and Refugees on Thursday said nearly 36,000 families have been internally displaced in the last four months as a result of fighting between security forces and insurgent groups.

The ministry even expressed concern that the number of internally displaced people may increase in the country if war continues.

Internally displaced people in Kunduz province say they live in difficult conditions in Kabul, where many families are flocking and facing a shortage of shelter and other basic needs, Tolo News reported.

Gol Mohammad, who is one of the displaced people, had fled Kunduz province and traveled to Kabul with his family several weeks ago.

He told Tolo News the current wars have forced large numbers of families in the province to flee their homes.

Gul Mohammad, a displaced person from Kunduz province, told Tolo News: “The reason for our migration from one place to another is the war, nothing else. Otherwise, no one leaves his or her home during EID days.”

Hameed, a displaced person from Kunduz, said he left everything behind and fled.

“Our homes, our life--everything--we left there and we came and migrated to this place. We do not know whether our homes are looted or burned," Hameed, a displaced person from Kunduz, said.

“I came here only with one set of clothes, I swear to God that I borrowed money for taxi costs to come here, such misery is continuing,” Hasan, another displaced person from Kunduz, told  the news portal.
