A thread on security:
1/6: Barely a day goes by without several explosions and targeted killings here in #Kabul. The atmosphere on the streets has changed; you can now see sheer panic in people’s faces.
2/6: Stuck in traffic recently,ppl in an armoured car next to me suddenly jumped out frantically,inspecting the doors,checking if an IED had been attached.I hoped no such bomb would explode;it didn’t.Seconds later,they resumed their trip,but the moment of naked fear lingered on.
3/6: #Kabul is on edge - and has been for the past months. In January, 30 such magnetic bombs exploded in the #Afghan capital alone, injuring and killing many, sending waves of fear into the nation.
4/6: #US forces are due to leave by May,but haven’t made their intentions clear. EU countries continue to deport Afghans straight into a raging war. It’s irresponsible,with decisions made by people outside of #Afghanistan,people who live in safety,who have never experienced war.
5/6: Afghans,many who have been hoping for decades,are once again on the move:Friends have left for Turkey,Uzbekistan,Pakistan,etc.With the constantly deteriorating security situation,every corner of #Kabul has become a #frontline. Many say this is the worst time since 2001.
6/6: Having lived here for 2.5 yrs,I can def say its the worst time Ive seen.Not just the violence,but the tiredness,the lack of hope after 4decades of war,after invasions at the expense of the Afghan ppl. In the midst of all the chaos,it’s Afghan lives lost. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
