Kundoz-people escaping war 21JUNE2015Pakistan is sending wheat to civilians affected by a deadly Taliban attack in northern Kundoz province.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif has directed the country’s Foreign Office to send a plane-load of wheat stock to Kundoz where people face major food shortage following the 16 days long clashes between Taliban insurgents and security forces.

A statement issued by the Prime Minister House states that this measure is being taken as a goodwill gesture on behalf of the people and Government of Pakistan for the returning residents of Kunduz facing severe food shortage after Taliban retreat.

Taliban stormed the key northern city at the end of September and controlled parts of it for about two days.

They were given a broken mouth response by security forces and run away from the city with heavy casualties.

Officials said that hundreds of militants were killed in air strikes and clashes with security forces.

The heavy gun battle continued for about a week but sporadic clashes continued for at least 16 days.

More than 300 civilians lost lives and sustained injuries in the fighting. Around 20,000 families which is estimated to have 100,000 people were internally displaced.

  1. This wheat stock which Pakistan wants to send to Kunduz is a rotten one and the millers in Pakistan denied to purchase that for transforming it into flour. Afghan government should be vigilant to Pakistan these inhuman acts.  

  2. When Afghan govt. asks to stop Taliban terrorism they do nothing…sending wheat is just way of pleasing Afghans so that they forget Taliban crimes….Kunduz was captured by Pakistan backed Taliban,so why are they sending wheat after being exposed……..Moreover Afghan govt. has to return back the wheat as Pakistan is poor country who has no ability to support others,their people are dying of hunger and they are not giving them food

  3. our government and people of Kunduz must reject these wheat back to them. there might another plan to kill the people by these wheat.
