Salang Tragedy: Taliban Refuse to Deliver War Victims’ Bodies to Families, Freedom Front Reports

According to the Freedom Front of Afghanistan, the Taliban have not yet handed over the bodies of their forces to their families, five days after the end of the conflict in the Salang district of Parwan province.

On Saturday night, 15 April, the Freedom Front announced in a newsletter that the Taliban have only delivered the body of Fahim Salangi, one of the victims of the conflict, to his family but have not allowed his funeral to be held.

According to the newsletter, the efforts of the Red Cross Committee to deliver the bodies of other members of this front to their families have also been unsuccessful.

In addition, the Freedom Front has claimed that the Taliban have harassed and persecuted the families of the victims of their forces in the past few days.

However, this front has called for the serious attention of the United Nations and other international human rights organizations to this matter.

It is worth mentioning that in the military clash between the forces of the Freedom Front and the Taliban in the Salang district of Parwan province on Tuesday night, 10 April, 6 members of this front were killed.
