The Taliban has become completely uncontrollable in Afghanistan. After the killing of Indian journalist Danish Siddiqui on Friday, terrorists also killed the deputy governor of Kapisa province. According to media reports, the deputy governor has died during cross-firing in the Nijrab district of the province. Violence in Afghanistan has increased as soon as US troops return and the Taliban is claiming control of 85 percent of the country’s areas.
According to the report, during an encounter, Taliban militants killed the deputy governor of Kapisa province, Aziz-ur-Rehman. Earlier on Friday, terrorists targeted Indian journalist Danish Siddiqui when he was reporting in the war-torn areas of Kandahar. Siddiqui received the Pulitzer Prize for his reporting in 2018. Danish had gone to Kandahar for reporting and was trying to show the real picture of terrorism to the world but he was killed.
US troops withdrawing in haste
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that the hasty withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan has destabilized the region and increased the terrorist threat. Lavrov told a conference of world powers and Afghanistan’s neighbors, “Regretfully we have seen a sharp deterioration in the situation in Afghanistan in the last few days.” “This crisis in Afghanistan has increased the terrorist threat and the problem of illicit drug trafficking has reached an unprecedented level,” he said.
Pakistan wants compromise
“There is a real risk of instability spreading to neighboring countries,” he said. Addressing the conference, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said that his country wants a peace settlement. He said that Pakistan is already handling more than two million refugees who have been in Afghanistan for decades and it is not in a position to handle more refugees if the violence escalates.
