Residents Flee Kunduz Village Over Brewing Insecurity

But local officials have rejected the claims and said security forces have cleared the village of insurgents.

Scores of residents from Mullah Sardar village on the outskirt of Kunduz city have fled their homes to avoid a possible war.
 
They said that Taliban snipers have taken up positions inside residential areas.
 
But local officials have rejected the claims and said security forces have cleared the village of insurgents.
 
“The people have been displaced, they are affected and face a lot of problems, their agriculture has been affected, the government must address their plight, but it does not mean that Mullah Sardar village was not cleared during the operation,” said the police Kunduz governor's spokesman Sayed Mahmoud Danish.
 
Meanwhile a number of Kunduz farmers have said that the war and violence has had a negative impact on agriculture.
 
Mullah Sardar village is located three kilometers from Kunduz city.
 
Residents who fled to the highway said that Taliban snipers have taken up positions inside people’s homes.
 
“The operation is going on in Dand Taloka and other areas, there has not been any kind of operation in Mullah Sardar village,” said a resident of the village, Abdul Jalil.
 
“All people have been displaced, we left each and everything in the village,” said another villager Rahmat.
 
“There are many families who have been split and they do not have information about the fate of their loved ones,” said a member of Kunduz provincial council Safiullah Amiri.
 
The Taliban has over run Kunduz city twice in the past two years.
 
According to Kunduz agriculture department, war in the province over the recent years has destroyed ten percent of their crops.
 
This year already five percent of fields have been destroyed in the area due to war.
