BADAKHSHAN, Afghanistan – The Taliban militants are oppressing civilians in areas under their control for days now, according to local authorities, plundering cash and available foods from the residents in Khadira village of Shaki district.   

While security in Northern provinces of Afghanistan remains critical, local authorities – including residents – fear losing main cities to the militants’ hand.

“The group has been collecting cash and food from the general public for several days in the village of Khadira in the Shaki district of Badakhshan,” said local authorities in a Facebook post Saturday evening.

According to the statement, about 100 families are living in the village who are mostly farmers and retailers.
