Speaking during a ceremony to mark the Week of Martyrs, President Ghani criticized the supporters of Massoud regarding the aerial firings and called a move that desecrates the desires of the martyrs.
He said the bloodshed has been going for the past 40 years and the continuation of the situation by violating the social norms, chaos, aerial firings, and absence of goal, would not help with the restoration of stability in the country.
This comes as the Ministry of Public Health had earlier said more than twenty people have sustained injuries due to the aerial firings in the capital.
In the meantime, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) says more than one hundred people have been arrested in connection to the aerial firings in Kabul city during the Week of Martyrs coinciding with the death of the former Mujahideen leader Ahmad Shah Massoud.
The Ministry of Interior (MoI) in a statement said at least one hundred and ten people have been arrested by the security forces in connection to the aerial firings in various parts of the city.
The statement further added that the security forces have also confiscated ten weapons and at least twenty five vehicles during the same operations.
