So far this month (April, 2014), the Pakistani military has been shelling the eastern provinces of Kunar, Nuristan and Paktika in Afghanistan, who have regularly been under attack by said army for the past few years.
The missiles have killed two women in Kunar, wounded a woman and her child, and destroyed six houses along with cattle, which many people’s income depend on, especially in such a tortured region like eastern Afghanistan.
Though these attacks draw very little attention in media, it is important that we remember the victims and those who suffer from these attacks daily. To better understand the lives of Afghan civilians under Pakistani imperialism, watch this video of Pashai villagers from the Korengal valley in Kunar explaining how their village and families, and even themselves, have been affected by these daily attacks.
