Explosion of Unexploded Ordnance Claims Lives of Two Innocent Children in Maidan Wardak: A Tragic Reminder of Lingering Threats
Sources from Maidan Wardak province have reported that two children were killed and another child was injured as a result of an explosion involving unexploded ordnance in the province.
The incident occurred today (Sunday, May 28) in the Mamokhil-Dara area of Sayed-Abad District in Maidan Wardak Province.
According to local sources, the victims of this event were aged 9, 12, and 14.
Sources state that the type of unexploded ordnance and the circumstances under which the children became victims of the explosion are still unknown.
Apparently, the unexploded ordnance has remained in place from previous years and during the conflict between the Taliban and the security forces of the previous government in the area.
It should be noted that the presence of mines planted by the Taliban in most areas poses a threat to the lives of the people.
Earlier this week, in a similar event in the Qara-Bagh District of Ghazni Province, a man was killed and a child was injured.
