KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Refugees from the Pakistaninfo-icon controlled tribal areas have said they would always remember the memories of their migrationinfo-icon in southeastern Khost province.

The repatriation process of tribal families had been launched and many were going back to their homes.

The family of Ghazi Khan is among the migrated families. He lived in a small house of Gulab Camp on the outskirts of Khost City, the provincial capital, from the past two and a half years.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News one should face some problem during migration as the new place is strange and people are unknown to you but he said being lived in Khost City he did not felt way from his home and the people were extremely cooperative.

He said: “The people of Afghanistaninfo-icon respected us like one respect his parents,” he said.

Abdul Khaleq, another refugee said: “It was the month of Ramazan when we migrated. We had nothing for eat and wear and run out of cash, but the residents of Khost provided us place in their homes and respected us a lot.”

He added: “The Pakistani military did not honour us the people of Afghanistan respected us.”

Khan Wad Khan, the tribal refugees head, while thanking the government and people of Afghanistan he said Afghans proved they were brave people.

He said the enemy should know that Pashtons could not be separated at any cost.

As many as 500,000 tribal families had to migrate after Pakistani military launched operation Zarb-i-Azab in North Waziristan. Of the migrated tribal families 30,000 came to Khost and another 10,000 sought refuge in Paktika province.

The blocakdge of crossing points created problems in the repatriation of tribal refugees. Although, Pakistan reopened Torkham and Spinboldak crossing points but the Gulam Khan crossing point was still closed.
