APPEAL FOR EMERGENCY HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE FOR THE SUVIVORS OF THE LATEST KILLING FRENZY BY THE TALIBAN MERCENARIES IN AFGHANISTAN
Since the outbreak of the on-going frenzy of ethnic cleansing by the Taliban, the Provinces of Parwan and Kapissa, adjacent to Kabul in the north, have become scenes of the worst-ever genocide and devastation.
The Taliban mercenaries backed by dozens of tanks and fighter jets have set on fire the villages of Guzar, Dakoo and Gul-Dara, some 20 Km north of the capital, Kabul, while continue to ransack and plunder civilian neighborhoods along their way, killing masses of innocent local inhabitants.
A massive influx of internal refugees numbering as many as 200,000 civilians, including women, children and elderly has already entered the Panjsher Valley, fleeing the areas, some ahead of the mercenaries onslaught on their villages.
In the wake of the on-going human tragedy in Afghanistan, the Islamic State of Afghanistan appeals to the United Nations, international relief agencies, Governmental and Non-Governmental Organizations, and the entire
international community for emergency humanitarian relief supplies to the thousands of displaced and stranded victims, facing dire shortages of the most essential necessities.
The immediate needs include tent, medicine and food. Urgent supply delivery could be made through Dushanbe, Taljikistan, from where ground shipments would proceed to the area across the border. Meanwhile, airlift may also be considered.
Inquiries on channeling donations and contributions could be made through
the Permanent Mission of the Islamic State of Afghanistan to the United Nations via Telephone: (212) 972-1212/3/21-Telefax: (212) 972-1216, and/or the Embassies of the Islamic State of Afghanistan in London at: Tel. 441715898891-Telefax: 441715813452, Paris at: Tel. 33145250529, Moscow at: Tel. 70959287278-Telefax: 70959217094, and New Delhi at: Tel. 9111606480-Telefax: 91116875439.
