5 Major Markets Destroyed In Ghazni War, Inflicting $50mn In Losses

The Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries said the war in Ghazni has inflicted $50 million in losses as 5 major markets were burned during the siege over the weekend. 

The clashes in Ghazni broke out in the morning of Friday and ended on Tuesday in a small trading hub which is now burned down to ashes. 

According to reports, clashes are still ongoing on the outskirts of the city.

“The war was carried out in a trading area,” the ACCI deputy head Khan Jan Alokozai said. “More than five big markets around the PD2 Police Headquarters have burnt down.”

The ACCI officials , after their preliminary investigation, said the 4-day war in Ghazni has had a serious impact and will take a long time for the city to revive. 

Meanwhile, Ghazni Provincial Council claims the damages are much higher—perhaps over $100 million—and urges the government to assign a team to probe into the situation. 

MP Shah Gul Rezaee called on the government to allocate a budget for reconstruction of the damages in the province.
