Afghanistan's humanitarian crisis may cause one million death in winter: Crisis Group


(MENAFN- Khaama Press)

Crisis Group has warned that the ongoing humanitarian crisis and winter season will cause one million death if not addressed and sanctions are not lifted from Afghanistan.

The Group has called on the International community to step forward and lift its sanctions to avert mass starvation as the country is facing deadly winter ahead.

In the meantime, the group has warned that the ongoing crisis and starvation will cause more deaths than the two decades of war in Afghanistan.

The reports also criticized the international community to be the real culprit as they had made a dependent government to foreign aid and then imposed sanctions on the country after they withdrew from Afghanistan.

The group has cited WHO's report saying, Afghanistan will face a terrible economic and financial situation in 2022 and that the salaries of teachers and health workers must be paid.

On the other hand, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has been demanding the release of over $9.5 billion but says that the situation is not that bad that will starve people.
