Amnesty International in a series of tweets announced their support to the people of #Afghanistan, especially those affected by the earthquake in #Khost and #Paktika provinces. (1/4)
The organization added that the Taliban de facto authorities in Afghanistan must attend to the immediate and essential needs of the affected communities and guarantee that humanitarian agencies must have access to the affected regions.

"Afghanistan is already facing food (2/4)
insecurity & poverty, where 95 % of people don’t have access to adequate food. It is critical that assistance is human rights compliant and meets the needs of at-risk groups, including women, children, older persons & people with disabilities," @amnestysasia added. (3/4)

Am #KabulAiport kehrt sowas wie Normalität ein. Erstmals seit der Machtübernahme durch die #Taliban ist dort eine Passagiermaschine einer internationalen Airline gelandet.
Ein Flugzeug der Pakistan International Airlines landete in #Kabul mit 10 Passagieren an Bord.

Zuvor war #Pakistan sehr aktiv darin, mit den #Taliban Kontakte zu knüpfen. Das Land war auch eines der ersten, das nach der Machtübernahme humanitäre Hilfe nach #Afghanistan geschickt hatte.
Mittlerweile landete die dritte pakist.Maschine in #Khost

Los centros sanitarios del país están sometidos a una gran presión por la falta de personal y equipos. Durante años, el sistema sanitario afgano ha dependido de la ayuda exterior. Si esta se detiene, podría entrar en un colapso total #Afganitán

elpais.com/internacional/…
#MSF continúa con sus actividades médicas en sus cinco proyectos en #Afganistán: Herat, Kandahar, Khost, Kunduz y Lashkar Gah. Tras el fin de los combates, la población se puede mover con más facilidad y ha habido un aumento de pacientes, especialmente en Herat y Lashkar Gah.
#Khost: Mercados, sistemas de transporte locales y muchas clínicas privadas no funcionan plenamente.
Algunas pacientes han dado a luz en casa durante la última semana porque no estaban seguras de que los centros de salud estuvieran abiertos.

Pro-Taliban accounts:
Since the creation of C.I.A. trained/sponsored #Khost Protection Forces (KPF), also called Campaign forces, this is the first time that the #Taliban have captured several vehicles of #KPF in #Spera District of Khost Province.
A video from the KPF vehicles captured by the Taliban in Khost:
Foreign fighters, from Hafiz Gul Bahadur's group, a breakaway faction of Pakistani Taliban (TTP) were reportedly involved in the battle of Spera District, Khost. Fighters of that group, alongside some locals, helped #AFG #Taliban to defeat CIA-trained #KPF militias in the area.

Sitting in #Washington & claiming “anonymous sources” is just silly.

Sitting in #Pakistan, we know this is #Afghanistan’s #NDS eating the fruits of nurturing #terrorists in #Khost, #Nangarhar & #Patika.

You’ve burned your own fingers playing with fire, @ashrafghani.
But this is the typical #Afghan reaction to #terrorism - it’s not our fault, #Pakistan did it.

The #Americans should seriously consider why their partners in #Kabul are unable to stop terrorism with any resolve.
Also, with #ISKP safe havens spread across #Afghanistan, its in worse condition today than it was before the #US invasion to remove the #Taliban (#IEA) from power.

Victory will not come through blame. It will come through action. Something #Kabul, #Delhi & #DC don’t understand.

With Gen. Mattis visiting #Pakistan today, we wanted to share some tips on what not to ask or do.

1) Don’t come to us asking #DoMore until you’ve taken responsibility for #Afghanistan’s soil & the #terrorists based there with @ashrafghani’s approval.

tribune.com.pk/story/1574915/…
@ashrafghani 2) Don’t expect us to help you until you target & eliminate #TTP, #JuA & #ISKP. All based very close to your FOBs in #Jalalabad, #Namgarhar & #Khost.
@ashrafghani 3) Don’t expect #Pakistan to sacrifice its #NationalInterest for yours. We’ve learned that lesson in 1989, not need for revision.
