Mortar Shell Kills or Wounds At least 40 Civilians in Faryab

MAIMANA – A mortar shell hit a market in Afghanistan’s northern Faryab province, killing at least six people and injuring more than 30 others, on Friday, a source told Sahar News.
The mortar shell hit the bazaar where people from several areas gather and sell their products.
“At least six people were killed and more than 30 injured when a mortar shell hit a bazaar in Khwaja Sabz Posh district in Faryab province, Friday morning,” a local security official said on the condition of anonymity.
The Taliban have dismissed responsibility for the incident after some media outlets accused it for the attack.
At the same time, a local health department said that, so far, four dead bodies had been taken to a hospital.
“Four dead bodies and 28 wounded people have been taken to the central hospital in Maimana city,” the head of the provincial health department, Naim Musamem, told in a statement.
The provincial police command, on its part, has said it is looking into the issue.
Afghanistan is suffering from an unstable political, social and security situation due to the activities of the Taliban movement and Daesh terrorist group.
