...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
in Maiwand district of Kandahar, there were four women and three children maimed.
"There was a clash between #ANDSF and the #Taliban in Maiwand, #Kandahar. The Taliban maimed 7 residents, all women and kiddies, from an indirect fire round. They speak of peace but their action harmed our women and kiddies," said MG Tadin’s social media.
Initial reports came from the District Chief of Police of Maiwand, Haji Lala who said the Taliban fired an indirect mortar round, aiming for the security forces and instead hit a local resident’s house which inflicted the injuries to the women and kiddies.
The Taliban have mentioned the festivities on social media, but failed to mention that civilians were maimed in the clash. The Taliban often target security forces but unfortunately residents are often victims of these attacks.
