EARTHQUAKE IN AFGHANISTAN

This is the first time that a humanitarian catastrophe has occurred under the Taliban regime, which is why Afghanistan is currently facing food and economic woes. 

 

The epicenter was reported below the Afghan border at 9:30 a.m. local time on Wednesday, at a distance of 6 km (6.5 miles) southwest of the city of Khost near the border with Pakistan. 

 

The quake, started at a magnitude of 7.5 km, according to the State Ministry for Debuster Management. 

 

 

A spokesman for the Taliban, Bilal Karimi, said in a statement that more information had been received from the quake-hit city of Khost, adding that the number of people who had lost their lives had risen to eight. He further added that more than five people have been severely affected and the number is expected to rise. People were buried under the rubble 

 

 

“Hundreds of people were buried under the rubble under the collapsed buildings and rescue efforts have been launched and in this critical situation, we call on the international community and organizations to go ahead and help the Afghan people,” Karimi said. Help 

 

Afghanistan has been suffering from earthquakes from the very beginning by the will of God, according to the report of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Causes an average of 3 deaths per year. 

 

 

Just a few months ago, an earthquake in the western part of the country in January killed more than 20 people and destroyed hundreds of homes.  

 

 

Afghanistan is in the throes of an economic crisis, and a senior Taliban official, Abdul Qahar Balkhi said the Taliban government could not help as much as the Afghan people need help. 

 

 

This is a difficult time for the Taliban, which has regained power since the fall of the Western-backed government last year. The Afghan government has had a difficult time, but this time the government is unable to help its people. 

 

 

 

One lucky survivor gave his name as Hakimullah and said: “We ask the Islamic Emirate and the whole country to come forward and help us.  

We have nothing but clothes to live on.” Not up to the tent. 

 

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) says it is deploying medical teams and providing medical supplies. Interior Ministry official Salahuddin Ayubi said the death toll could rise “because” some villages are located in remote mountainous areas and it may take time to get detailed information.  

 

Natural disaster experts and humanitarian workers said the mountainous areas were particularly at risk, with houses being built and ongoing destruction. I was rushed to the hospital with my injured wife and children and the rest of the family was crushed to death.  

 

Another major challenge for the Taliban is that many areas have been gripped by floods and many highways have been blocked due to the effects of the floods. Awal Khan Zardan, a well-known doctor in Paktika, said: “Almost all the hospitals in Afghanistan are full of injured and affected people. Some of the victims are being airlifted to Kabul and others to other provinces.”
