isis300,000 children have been facing uneducated future because of Daesh in eastern Nangarhar province.

According to the information provided by the directorate of education Directorate in Nangarhar, 58 schools have either been closed by Daesh or shut down because of the security threat from this group.

Mohammad Asif, spokesman for the directorate of education said the closure has caused 300,000 children out of school.

He said the education department is trying to reopen these schools through negotiations with security forces, local administration and community elders.

The barbarism of Daesh has made people frustrated in Nangarhar.

Few days before, dozens of residents of Achin District arrived in Jalalabad city, the provincial capital of Nangarhar, and criticized government for not taking strict actions against the group.

They said that without any reason Daesh terrorists capture people and kill them.

A teen aged boy whose eyes were full of tears said that Daesh killed his father for no reason.

An old lady, who wanted to tell media about Daesh’s brutality she had seen, fell unconscious without saying anything.

Reports suggest that the group has killed at least 600 civilians in Nangarhar, most of them in Achin District, in the past few months.

The group has also started recruiting child soldiers.
