According to the reports, angry Taliban militants have killed four donkeys who were carrying food from the Taliban area to the government-held territory in Ghor province of Afghanistan.

Abdul Hai Khatibi, a provincial spokesperson for Ghor has confirmed the incident has taken place in the Chaharsada district of Ghor on Monday.

According to another report, a woman coming from her parent’s home in Korgin to the Chaarsada district had her four donkeys loaded with rice, ghee and flour were stopped by the Taliban militants, the food was seized and the donkeys were shot dead.

The Taliban have not commented yet on this.

This comes as the US peace envoy and the Taliban leaders have been discussing a peace deal for the last 12 months as a result of which violence reduction and a ceasefire is expected.

The Taliban had earlier announced that their leaders have agreed to a 7-10 days brief ‘ceasefire’ after they sign a deal with the United States.

The Afghanistan government is insisting on a complete ‘ceasefire’ before they sign an agreement with the United States.
