17 Killed In Celebratory Gunfire In Kabul
No fewer than 17 persons have been reported dead in celebratory gunfire in Kabul Afghanistan capital.

Gatekeepers News reports that the incident follows claims by Taliban sources that their fighters had seized control of Panjshir, the last province in Afghanistan holding out against the Islamist group.

Although, leaders of the opposition to the Taliban have denied that the province has fallen.

The Shamshad news agency said, “aerial shooting” in Kabul on Friday killed 17 people and wounded 41.

Gulzada Sangar, the spokesman for an area hospital in the provincial capital of Jalalabad, said about 14 people were injured in celebratory firing in Nangarhar province east of the capital.

Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid has condemned the celebratory gunfire.

“Avoid shooting in the air and thank God instead,” Mujahid said in a message on Twitter. “Bullets can harm civilians, so don’t shoot unnecessarily.”
