The 42 health centers which were closed in Maidan Wardak province have been reopened, a spokesman of the Ministry of Public Health, Wahidullah Mayar, said.
He said in a tweet that the centers were reopened after mediation by tribal elders in the province.
The Taliban in a statement said that the centers were reopened to address people’s problems.
The Swedish Committee for Afghanistan (SCA) has 77 health facilities in the province, 42 of which were closed due to Taliban’s pressure on July 17, depriving thousands of people of health services.
SCA said the move comes following last week’s “deadly attack” by Afghan security forces in Wardak against this organization in which four people were killed.
The SCA is a politically and religiously unbound Swedish non-governmental organization active in Afghanistan. The organization was formed in 1980.
The Ministry of Defense said the incident will be investigated.
