KABUL (Pajhwok): The Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission (IARCSC) head on Thursday said that 260 administrative buildings have been destroyed and 13 million people deprived of public services as a result of intensified attacks by Taliban.

Ahmad Nader Naderi shared a report about the current situation of the country and damages caused in conflicts due to increased attacks from the Taliban in a conference today.

He said that public facilities were recklessly damaged in new Taliban violence.

The Taliban destroyed 260 administrative buildings while capturing districts in 29 provinces of the country. He put the value of the facilities at $500 million.

Naderi called administrative buildings as properties of the Afghan people and said, “Whoever destroyed these facilities, the group who facilitated this situation is responsible.”

He said that public facilities and services were also looted. In 82 districts, all the equipment had been looted, in 80 districts, 90 percent of equipment, in 14 districts, 60 percent of equipment looted and in 35 districts, over 50 percent equipment had been looted, he said.

These looted facilities were providing education, health and agricultural services to the public, he added.

Over 4,000 civil workers and their families had been displaced to major cities as result of savagery and oppression from Taliban, Naderi said.

He said that over 13 million people were deprived of public services. In areas of war, services of water supply, agriculture, health, education and contractions have been limited.

He said that over 50,000 civil services workers had been affected by war and they currently stayed at their homes.
