Security Threats Remain High In Khwaja Omari District: Officials

The Khwaja Omari district in the central province of Ghazni is still facing security threats after it was cleared of Taliban earlier this month, local officials and local residents said on Friday. 

The residents said there is a need for a large scale military operation to remove the threats, some Khwaja Omari residents said. 

Some residents of the district who left their houses during the conflicts have returned back to their homes. 

Khwaja Omari district is located 18 kilometers to the east the city of Ghazni and was under Taliban control for almost one year.

“When we retook the district, most parts of it were destroyed by blasts,” the Ghazni Police Chief Mohammad Khalid Wardak said.

“There are some problems, including lack of schools, especially for girls,” the Ghazni governor Wahidullah Kalimzai said. 

A commander of 203 Thunder Corps, Abdul Mubeen Mujtaba, said that Khwaja Omari district is threatened by its neighboring districts in Maidan Wardak district, but he said that the Afghan forces “always ready” to thwart the threats. 

The Afghan forces have retaken two districts of Ghazni from the Taliban in less than a month, but reports indicate that almost half of almost 300 voter registration centers have remained closed in the district due to security issues.
