The demonstrators were urging the National Unity Government (NUG) to clear Khas Uruzgan, Jaghori and Malistan districts in Ghazni and Uruzgan provinces of Taliban and to send in emergency humanitarian aid to displaced residents, along with extra, permanent, troops to the areas and to establish a military corps in the region.

The protest comes after Taliban last week launched group attacks from different directions on Jaghori district.

Reportedly, despite the government sending reinforcement troops, the security in the central provinces has deteriorated. In the past few days, security forces have suffered a high casualty toll. (ANI)
