The Afghan Journalists Association in Exile has reported another instance highlighting the ongoing vulnerability of Afghan journalists, this time in Pakistan. An Afghan journalist was targeted, sustaining injuries to both his foot and head as a result of the attack.

The organization known as “Afghan Journalists in Exile, in Europe and North America,” citing Ahmad Hanayesh’s family members, stated that the journalist’s condition deteriorated after the attack, and he is scheduled for surgery.

Details of the targeting of this Afghan journalist are unclear. The Afghan Journalists Association in Exile stated that he was attacked by unidentified individuals yesterday in Islamabad.

Some media outlets have described Hanayesh’s health condition as “satisfactory” and, according to their sources, he has regained consciousness and is under special care.

It is reported that the wounds to his head are not severe, with the bullet grazing the surface. Surgery will be performed to remove another bullet from his foot.

The Afghan Journalists Association in Exile continues to report similar incidents, expressing concern over the lack of safety for journalists in Pakistan and Iran.

In a statement, the organization said: “In recent weeks, Mr. Mirwais Khawarin, the former head of the Afghan Senate’s television, was also seriously injured in an attempted assassination in Islamabad, Pakistan, by armed individuals.”
