  • The intensification of the conflict observed during the month of May has spread to other districts in Kunduz and Faryab Provinces generating the displacement of approximately 1,500 families and frequent physical safety risks for the civilian population. Large areas recaptured by ANSF have been contaminated by landmines and UXOs hampering the safe return of displaced persons to their place of origin.
