As the conflict between the Taliban and Afghan government Force’s members rages in southern Kandahar province, the misery has left over five thousand families homeless who have left their homes and properties and relocated to Kandahar city.

The families now left behind all they had in districts and believe to be looted.

Provincial sources in Kandahar province say that the Taliban fighters have been waging war now in PD7 of Kandahar province and got even closer to the central prison of the province.

 The Taliban insurgents now believed to be controlling Arghistan, Khurabak, Khakriz, Maiwand, Panjwaee, Maroof, Ghorak, and Shawalikot districts of Kandahar province.

Provincial officials in Kandahar province on the other hand say that reinforcement has been sent and the security situation of the province will soon be brought under ANDSF’s control.

Thousands of people in Kandahar province displace at a time when on the parallel move thousands of households leave their homes and property in all war-hit provinces across the country.

Local residents in southeastern Paktia province say that in some districts, fallen to the Taliban, the local residents have not been allowed to relocate to safe areas or to Kabul.
