A conflict between two families over land, in the province of Khost in southeast Afghanistan, led to one fatality and ten injuries, according to local Taliban officials.

According to the Taliban spokesman for Khost Police, Mustaghfer Gariz, the event took place in the Sabri district of Khost province.

The Taliban official stated that several people have been arrested for their alleged involvement in this conflict and that they are currently being investigated.

Earlier, two people were reportedly killed and seven others were wounded in a dispute between two families in the province of Paktia in southeast Afghanistan, according to local Taliban administration authorities.

Officials from the Taliban said that these two families, who were involved in a legal dispute, had a violent and fatal clash resulting in many casualties and injuries.

Domestic violence, honor killings, interpersonal hostility, family conflict, and suicide reports have all recently substantially increased under the Taliban’s rule. Despite the Taliban’s assurances of security, crime rates have remained high and have recently even gone worse in several provinces.—Khaama News Agency
