    Head of refugees and repatriation department of Farah province on Saturday said over 7,000 families have fled from their homes in the province as a result of ongoing skirmishes between the Taliban and security forces on the outskirts of the city.

    Farah refugees and repatriation director Rahmuddin Rigiwal said many of these families have left the province as clashes intensify.

    Rigiwal said the situation has raised serious concerns and displaced families are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

    “Since the start of the battles, nearly 7,100 families have been displaced from the districts and remote areas and they have come to Farah city,” said Rigiwal.

    Farah residents said they are really worried about the Taliban’s advance on the city.

    “This is the worst situation that we have. We along with our families are awake all night and are afraid that we may get killed,” Noor Ahmad, a resident of Farah said.

    “We have left our houses and have fled and now we are living in the worst situation and so far no one has helped us,” Dawood, another resident of Farah said.
