Web Desk: Heavy rain and floods have wreaked havoc in Afghanistan’s Baghlan province.
The United Nations says that more than 300 people have died due to floods in Afghanistan, while more than a thousand houses have been destroyed and thousands of people who live in them have been displaced.
According to the UN report, flood disasters also continue in Takhar province, the second closest to Baghlan province in Afghanistan, where at least 20 people are said to have died.
The spokesman for the Taliban government, Zabihullah Mujahid, has said in a post on the X social media platform that hundreds of people have died due to heavy rains and floods while a large number of people have also been injured.
Zabihullah Mujahid said that Badakhshan, Baghlan, Ghor and Herat provinces have been most affected by heavy rain and floods. Estimates of damaged houses and other areas have also been estimated in these areas.
He said that the government had issued instructions to take the people to a safe place in this difficult situation, to transfer the injured to the medical centers to facilitate the treatment, and also to use the resources available for bury the dead.
The Taliban Ministry of Defense has said that the Air Force has already started evacuating people in Baghlan.
In this regard, it has been further informed that a large number of people trapped in the flood affected areas have been rescued while 100 injured have also been shifted to the hospital.
Richard Bennett, the United Nations Special Representative on the human rights situation in Afghanistan, said in a message on the X social media platform that the recent heavy rains and floods are a sign of the growing threat of a climate crisis. Long-term planning is needed in this regard.
It should be remembered that more than 300 people have died due to stormy rains and devastating floods in Afghanistan, while many have been injured.
