According to the authorities, Kunduz, Baghlan, Faryab, Sar-e-Pul, Nangarhar, Helmand and Farah are among the provinces where most of the people have left their houses due to insecurities.
“Insecurity is the main factor of displacement and people have fled their houses due to the ongoing fighting. The number of internally displaced Afghans reaches up to two to three percent of the country’s population,” said Mehre Khoda Saber the head of Internally Displaced Directorate in the MoRR.
Meanwhile, internally displaced families describe their living situation as catastrophic.
“We are living a difficult live with a tent in the desert,” an IDP told Ariana News in western Herat province.
Afghanistan is among the countries with the highest number of displaced citizens with more than one million IDP’s and five million refugees living abroad.
