President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has received a final report regarding the brutal massacre of the civilians in northern Sar-e-Pul province of Afghanistan.
The Office of the President, ARG Palace, in a statement said the report was presented by the Attorney General Mohammad Farid Hamidi during a meeting of the Commander-in-Chief of the Afghan Armed Forces chaired by President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.
The statement further added that the report was reviewed during the meeting and necessary instructions were issued to the relevant authorities.
The Offie of the President did not disclose any further information regarding the report and the government’s future plans to deal with the incident.
This comes as the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) in a report said late in August “The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) released today the initial findings of its human rights fact-finding into the 3 to 5 August attack on Mirza Olang village in Sayyad district of Sari Pul province.”
The report further added that UNAMA verified allegations that Taliban and local self-proclaimed Islamic State / Daesh fighters killed at least 36 persons, including civilians and person hors de combat, during the attack on Mirza Olang.
According to UNAMA, at least half of the killings took place on Saturday 5 August when Anti-Government Elements stopped families trying to escape the village, separated women and young children, and killed at least 18 people, both civilians and Pro-Government Militia who were hors de combat at the time of their killing.
Others, including one woman, were reportedly shot while they tried to escape from the village, the report added.
