PESHAWAR: The Governor of Afghanistan’s Khost province Abdul Jabbar Naeemi has said that 1,079 displaced families from Pakistan’s North Waziristan tribal region had been registered and were being accommodated in a relief camp.
The Afghan Islamic Press quoted a press release about the Governor’s address to a meeting in Khost city in which he said the camp was being established on 1,000 acres of land in Gulan Dashta area in Khost’s Gurbaz district. He said 3,500 displaced children had been vaccinated and efforts were underway to provide education facilities to the children and the youth. He added that the UNHCR had provided 250 tents and edibles for 500 families.
Governor Naeemi, who lived for many years in Peshawar, said it was the religious and national duty of the Afghan citizens to extend assistance to Pakistanis migrating to Afghanistan. He lauded the people of Khost for assisting the displaced Pakistanis with edibles, drinking water and other facilities. He asked the national and international relief organizations to extend assistance to the migrants from Pakistan.
Meanwhile, the Governor of Paktika province, Mohibullah Samim said that “thousands” of families displaced from North Waziristan had come to his province in Afghanistan and were staying in Sarobi, Barmal and Argun districts of Paktika. He said plans were afoot to extend help to the displaced North Waziristanis and assign residential area for them.
