80% of Afghanistan is cleared of mines

Over 2.1 million mines have been discovered and destroyed all across Afghanistan since 1989, when demining organizations began their operations to clear the mines.

According to a number of demining organizations, 80% of Afghanistan has been cleared of mines.

By 2023, Afghanistan is expected to be a mine-free country.

Landmines have been a long time hidden enemies of Afghanistan that have claimed lives of thousands of Afghanistan, especially of playing children.

Mine laying in Afghanistan began during the Soviet occupation of the country between 1979 and 1989. The country was mined heavily further in the mid-1990s, during the fighting between Mujahideen factions. Recently, the Taliban militia used landmines against the Northern Alliance from 1996 to 2001.

Many Afghans fled their homeland as residential areas and agricultural land became dangerous.
