Insecurity has widely spread in northern provinces threatening the lives in five provinces which are relatively unrest, said Parliament members from northern areas.
Badakhshan, Faryab, Kunduz, Sar-e-Pul and Jowzjan are said to be the five northern provinces witnessing most of insurgent attacks.
Most of the insurgent attacks in northern provinces are plotted by the local insurgents, said Brishna Rabi, female lawmaker from northern Balkh.
"Local insurgents are behind the security threats which are increasing day to day," Rabi stated. "If the local forces curb insurgents, this will help the central government in fighting terrorists."
MP from Badakhshan, Abdul Raouf Enami, warned the security situation of northern zone would be further deteriorated if solid steps not taken by the government.
"If the problem continued, in future no one would be able to travel from Kabul to northern parts," Enami said.
The Ministry of Defense (MoD) officials admit insecurity in some parts of northern provinces but emphasize that the security forces would never allow insurgents to take control of these areas.
"Insurgents can never have training centers in Afghanistan because our security forces have full control on all parts of the country," deputy MoD spokesman Dawlat Waziri noted.
But according to Ministry of Interior (MoI) officials, insecurity increased in northern provinces because of insurgents' plan to target northern areas in 2014.
"The insurgents had planned to make unsafe the northern parts but fortunately they didn't reach their aim," MoI spokesman Sediq Sediqi said. "Insurgents in Faryab, Kunduz and Badakhshan are facing strong defeat."
According to local officials in Kunduz and Badakhshan, foreign militants affiliated with Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) militant group are conducting most of the attacks in northern provinces.
