Recent floods in the Faryab province of Afghanistan have resulted in a significant loss of life, with at least 80 reported deaths, 5 injuries, and 5 individuals missing, according to local sources.

The floods, which occurred last Friday, have devastated several districts, including Bulcharagh, Pashtunkot, Khwaja Sabzposh, Qaisar, and Almar, leaving dozens dead and wounded, as reported by local media outlets in Faryab province.

This comes despite earlier statements by Esmaeil Muradi, the spokesperson for the governor in Faryab, who had informed the press on Saturday that the floods on Friday had resulted in 18 deaths and 2 injuries.

However, the latest reports indicate that the floods in Faryab have claimed the lives of at least 80 individuals, injured five, and left five others missing.

The humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan has been exacerbated by such natural disasters, with the country already reeling under the weight of conflict and political instability.

Furthermore, neighbouring countries like Pakistan and Iran have been forcefully deporting Afghan migrants, adding to the plight of the Afghan people.

Pakistan and Iran’s forced deportation of Afghan migrants has led to a dire situation, as many of these individuals face uncertain futures upon returning to Afghanistan. This influx of returnees strains the country’s limited resources, worsening the humanitarian crisis.

The shortage of resources, coupled with the ongoing conflict and natural disasters, poses a grave challenge to the Afghan population’s survival and well-being.

Access to basic necessities such as food, clean water, and shelter remains a pressing issue, highlighting the urgent need for international assistance and support.
