Government Forces Launch House-to-House Searches in Kabul

Citizens in Kabul report that house-to-house searches have begun by the current government forces in the city.

Some citizens in Kabul told Hasht-e Subh on Friday that Taliban militants had searched their homes.

They state that the military did not listen to the people and searched all the appliances in the house. Citizens call this a violation of citizens’ privacy.

On the other hand, videos and images obtained on social media show that in the house-to-house inspection, even the bags of women’s clothing and the locks on the gates were broken.

Journalists also report that the offices of journalistic institutions are being searched. But no details have been released yet.

Meanwhile, government spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid confirmed in a newsletter that forces from three security organizations in Kabul and some provinces had launched a clean-up operation.

He said the operation was aimed at arresting “thieves, kidnappers and other criminals.”

He warned that those people would be killed if they clashed with their military.

Mujahid has said that the operation will not harm the families of civilians, adding that precautionary measures will be taken.

He stressed that the clean-up operation is to ensure the security of the residents of Kabul and other provinces.

However, some jurists consider house-to-house searches without a court order to be a violation of the privacy of individuals and contrary to all legal principles.
