Hundreds of people displacing as violence rises between Afghan forces and Taliban

Tens of families have also been settled in two local camps.

In a temperature now soaring 40 centigrade, people in Kandahar are devoid of electricity, fuel price has been nearly doubled, academic institutions are shut and there are no mobile signals/connections available by night.

Local journalists report that public residential areas and homes have been transformed into military bastions and are being used by both sides.

Civilians are being killed and wounded on daily basis but there is no human rights advocate to defend the violation of human rights.

People in Kandahar city warn that if the conflict continues with its current momentum, more people will displace which will lead to a humanitarian disaster in the strategic province of Kandahar.
