The forces have also provided two helicopters to transport the critically injured to hospitals, and a special entry system has been set up at the Ghulan Kham border for quake victims. Earlier, General Nadeem Raza, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC), and all service chiefs expressed condolences for the deaths caused by the earthquake and torrential floods, with the army promising all-out assistance to those affected.

The magnitude 6.1 earthquake in Afghanistan killed over 1,000 people and injured nearly 1,600, with the death toll expected to rise as information from remote mountain villages becomes available.

According to an official, the death toll could rise as rescue efforts continue in the province’s Gayan and Barmal districts.

The quake on Wednesday was the deadliest since 2002. According to the US Geological Survey (USGC), it struck about 44 kilometres from the southeastern city of Khost, near the border with Pakistan.

The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported shaking felt by approximately 119 million people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India on Twitter.
