Taliban order some of Kunduz city residents to leave their homes

Taliban order some of Kunduz city residents to leave their homes

KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Some residents of the capital of northeastern Kunduz province on Saturday expressed their concern over the Talibaninfo-icon’s warning to leave their homes while police officials say the insurgent group had no the ability to carry out any attack on the provincial center.

Two days back, the Taliban militants have attacked security posts in Zarkharid and Saysad Family areas of the Kunduz city and caused causalities to a number of people and forced around 600 families to leave their homes.

Gul Rahman, a resident of the Saysad Family area, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Taliban militants have told them to move their home to another place as soon as possible.

He said, “Taliban have announced in our local masque and told people home to home that they would start attacking military areas and the residents around such areas have to leave their homes.”

Mohammad Naeem, another resident of the Zarkharid locality, also told Pajhwok they were informed by Taliban militants to leave their residential buildings soon.

He asked the government to conduct clearing operation against Taliban militants in their area, he said because they had no any other place to go again.

A number of other residents had held similar views and urged the government for conducing operation against Taliban militants.

On the other hand, provincial police chief, Col. Manzoor Stanikzai, told Pajhwok that Taliban militants would not be able to carry out an attack again on Kunduz city.

“Taliban by such allegation just want to create fear among people but I assure the people that Taliban would do nothing,” he said.

Taliban have not yet commented on this regard.

Kunduz is one of the country’s unstable provinces and was fallen twice to the hands of the Taliban over the last few years.
