In Kabul city, a member of security personnel was injured in an explosion and police claimed to have killed three robbers while two unidentified bodies were found in Khak-i-Jabbar district.

Officials said eight armed opponents were killed last week in Kohistan district, Badakhshan province.

A kidnapper was killed in Bagram district, Parwan province, but the victim’s family said he was innocent.

According to reports, a man killed three other people in Laghman province while another man killed five people in Faryab province, security forces also killed Faryab’s killer.

Last week, explosive remnants of war (ERW) killed two children in Jalrez district, MaidanWardak province. A person was mysteriously killed in Ghor. In Samangan, unknown gunmen killed a man while a body was also found in Aibak, the provincial capital.

The previous week, five people had been killed and 68 others injured in various violent incidents in Afghanistan.

It comes as before last year’s regime change, hundreds of people were reportedly killed and injured in Afghanistan every week.

$96 million in aid

Last week, $96 million in cash assistance from the international community arrived in Afghanistan in three installments. Since the regime change in Afghanistan last year, $692 million in cash aid has arrived in Kabul so far.

According to reports, UNOCHA has announced an additional $7.2 million in humanitarian aid from Sweden to Afghanistan.

SIGAR has also pledged continued assistance to Afghanistan.

Last week, the World Bank said that if the Afghan government wanted it, Afghanistan’s economy would not collapse because the country has rich natural resources and there is national security.

inclusive government

Last week, the United States, India and Iran renewed their focus on establishing an inclusive government in Afghanistan.

This comes as Afghanistan’s caretaker government has repeatedly declared the government to be inclusive.

Human rights

More than 50 members of the French parliament, in a letter addressed to the president of the country, demanded sanctions against the leaders of the Afghan interim government for “violation” of human and women’s rights.

The United States has expressed concern about the human rights situation in Afghanistan, saying the new government has created a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.

However, Afghan officials dismissed the allegations as groundless and said that all legitimate human rights were guaranteed in Afghanistan and that concerns in this regard were unfounded.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) also expressed concern about the situation of Afghan women and said that Afghans, especially women and girls, face many challenges.

However, the Afghan government claims that it gives full rights to women and girls under Sharia.

girls’ education

The new school year in Afghanistan began on March 23, but the government postponed the opening of girls’ schools beyond sixth grade, saying schools would reopen once a plan was completed.

The government’s decision to delay the opening of schools has been met with backlash.

UNHCR said last week it expects girls and boys to have equal access to education to help secure a stable peace in Afghanistan’s future.

The U.S. State Department also said that failure by Afghanistan’s caretaker government to reverse its decision on girls’ secondary education would have serious consequences for the United States and the international community.

However, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the first deputy chief minister, during his visit to Farah province on Friday, expressed hope that schools for girls beyond sixth grade could reopen.

Mobilization of the old forces

A general in the previous government, Sayed Sami Sadat, said he would start mobilizing former security forces for resistance, but interim government officials said the issue did not merit a government reaction.
