Local sources in Ghor province have reported that unidentified gunmen riding motorcycles targeted and killed a man in the province on Saturday, September 30, in the area of “Maidanak-e Rezaha” in the city of Firuzkoh.
According to witnesses interviewed by Hasht-e Subh, the victim was identified as “Mullah Jalal,” a shopkeeper in the “Maidanak-e Rezaha” area. The motive behind the attack remains unknown at this time.
This incident follows a similar tragedy last year when Mullah Jalal’s brother, Mawlavi Abdul Matin, a professor at the Darul Uloom of Ghor province, was also killed by unidentified gunmen.
The Taliban have not issued any statements regarding this recent incident.
Regrettably, Ghor province has witnessed a surge in such incidents in recent months. Not long ago, unidentified armed individuals also fatally shot a shopkeeper in the Teyora district of the province.
