6 people died due to snowfall in western Afghanistan


On Monday, 6 people were killed as a result of an avalanche of a house in Herat Province, western Afghanistan.

State spokesperson Gilani Farhad told reporters that the snow that had fallen for days had negatively affected the lives of citizens.

Farhad said that they could not reach some areas of the state, after the snow caused the closure of the roads leading to it.

He added that 6 people were killed in an avalanche in a house in “Angel” district in the state.

Harsh weather conditions resulted in the deaths of at least 24 people, according to the Afghan Disaster Management Ministry.

It also announced, in a statement, that it will continue to snow in 13 different states.

The statement pointed out that many of the country’s roads, led by that link between the capital, Kabul, and the northern regions, were closed due to heavy snowfall.

He also mentioned that the flights at the “Kabul” International Airport witnessed disturbances for the same reason.
