Fatal Landmine Blast in Ghazni: Innocent Farmer Falls Victim
Local sources have reported a tragic incident in the Moqur district of Ghazni province, where a farmer lost his life due to an explosion caused by a leftover landmine from previous clashes between the Taliban and the security forces of the former government.
The explosion occurred on Wednesday, June 7, near the roadside in the village of Asghar-Khil, Moqur district, Ghazni province, according to local sources.
These sources further revealed that the landmine had remained in the area since the clashes between the Taliban and the security forces of the former government.
The victim, a farmer, was operating his tractor on his farm when the explosion occurred.
Based on the information provided by the sources, this area has been a site of frequent explosions and bloody conflicts between the Taliban and the security forces in the past years. The Taliban had turned the region into a minefield in order to inflict casualties on the security forces.
The local inhabitants are now deeply concerned about the potential presence of other landmines in the vicinity.
It is worth mentioning that a similar incident took place not long ago in the Leyoni Bazaar area of Qara-Bagh district, Ghazni province, resulting in the death of one man and the injury of a child.
