A dispute which sparked between two families, in the eastern Afghan province of Laghman, led to five fatalities, said local Taliban authorities.
The Taliban-run Bakhtar state news agency reported that the conflict between the families took place in the Dawlat Shah district of Laghman province on Thursday.
According to Qari Abdul Qadir Mutawakkul, the district governor of the Taliban in Dawlat Shah district, in the conflict, the father, mother, and son of one family, as well as a couple from another family, were killed.
The Taliban officials, on the other hand, did not comment or provide any information about what prompted the families to inflict human losses on one another.
A land dispute between two families earlier in late August in the southeast Afghan province of Khost resulted in one fatality and 10 injuries.
In the southeast and east of Afghanistan, disputes over land and water have become common among tribes and families, often resulting in the tragic death of their loved ones.
Under the Taliban’s control, there has recently been a marked rise in reports of suicide, domestic violence, honor killings, family conflicts, and personal enmity.
