A 15-year-old girl was fatally shot by unknown gunmen in the Faryab province of northern Afghanistan, according to local sources.
According to the sources, the armed men killed a young girl after breaking into a house in the Kohistan district of Faryab province on Saturday night, July 23.
On the other hand, the provincial Taliban officials have not yet spoken on the matter.
While the Taliban has taken no action to combat these crimes, reports of armed attacks by armed people have recently escalated, with women being the primary victims.
Earlier this month, an unidentified man stabbed a 50-year-old woman to death in her own home in the central Afghan province of Kapisa.
In Kandahar Province’s Ayno Mina city, a man allegedly shot his ex-wife, killing two men and a woman.
Over 100 women and girls have reportedly been killed, abducted, or committed suicide in the previous six months, according to a report by the Afghanistan International news channel.
In recent months, there has been an upsurge in domestic violence, personal enmity, and family blood feuds, which have resulted in homicides, target killings, and honor killings.
