The Taliban fighters on Friday night opened gunshots in the air across the country which inflicted casualties to over 70 people around the country but the number seems to be higher due to the absence of reports from provinces.

Emergency hospital based in Kabul confirmed 17 dead bodies and 40 wounded people have been rushed to the hospital on Friday night, September 4.

Unconfirmed reports from the eastern Jalalabad city of Nangarhar province read that 17 people have been killed and wounded in the last night’s gunshots.

The gunshots were conducted across the country which has probably inflicted causalities, but there are yet to be given reports from the provinces.

The gunshots which were extremely heavy and horrific were said to have been carried out on the celebration of the collapse of Panjshir province, the only defiant province which is still resisting the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

The Taliban officials condemned the gunshots and warned of tough repercussions in case repeated.

Head of the military commission and son of the founder of the Taliban, Mullah Yaqoob Mujahid said that Panjshir province has not been taken and no one is allowed to be shot in the air.

He added that the culprit will be arrested and disarmed if the aerial shots are repeated again.
