Afghanistan: Taliban Reach Anabah, Panjshir Valley
EMERGENCY’S ANABAH HOSPITAL RECEIVED A SMALL NUMBER OF WOUNDED PATIENTS.
During the night of Friday 3 September, Taliban forces pushed further into the Panjshir Valley, reaching the village of Anabah where EMERGENCY’s Surgical Centre and Maternity Centre are located.
There has so far been no interference with EMERGENCY’s activities. We have received a small number of wounded people at the Anabah Surgical Centre.
Many people have fled from local villages in recent days.
The quality of communications with the hospital has deteriorated. Due to these technical difficulties, our doctors and nurses are currently unable to respond to any interview requests.
In Kabul, our Medical Coordinator at the Surgical Centre for War Victims, Alberto Zanin, reported on the situation in the capital. From 9pm on Friday 3 September, the Kabul hospital admitted 3 patients, treated 7 outpatients, and received 2 people already dead on arrival.
