During interviews, the affected families claimed that there are conflict factors in their original areas which caused them to flee their villages. They said presence of unknown people under name of Taliban and AOGs in their areas made the lives difficult for the civilians. They added, when Taliban attack to capture new villages they directly start with shooting whoever comes in front of them, and they even fired the houses. ANSF started their ground operations too but due to less equipment capacity they are unable to keep these villages under their control for longer time. And when AOGs recaptures these villages they start annoying civilians under different excuses that they are part of government and they help Afghan army. Beside all these, the progress of retaken the villages by ANSF is very slow.
