International community has kept distance from Afghanistan

In online pictures, houses made of mud bricks are seen falling. At the same time, local people are also seen removing the debris. Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Taliban government, tweeted, “In the severe earthquake in four districts of Paktika province, hundreds of people in our country have been killed and many houses have been destroyed.” Urge the aid agencies to immediately send their teams to the spot to handle the situation.
