Too many Facebook users across Afghanistan took on their accounts to share some of the most shocking tales and news, ranging from killing high-profile officials to some of their closest friends.

It’s a way most Afghans back in the country celebrate “April fool”, the day when you tell a lie just for fun.

One Facebook user has written on his account like,” Just heard 40 of my friends passed away.”

Apart from killing their friends on social Medias, a remarkable number of Afghan internet-friendly users had fantasy trips around U.S. and Europe today. Like one user wrote on his Facebook,” trip to Berlin; Hope to make back to Afghanistan one day. Bye Kabul!”

For those who are familiar with the nature of April fool, today nothing is serious, or acceptable.

April fool, at the same time, provides a rare chance for some lovers in Afghanistan to express their feelings for their beloved ones.

Like this user who wrote,” I don’t know anything about [April] fool, but swear to God, I love you!”

For some people whom marrying or motherhood is a sweat and hard –to- gain dream, today is the opportunity to share their desires indirectly. Like this one,”Just noticed gonna be mom soon!”

But, here in Afghanistan even a boy can become a mother only in April fool day. As this face book user wrote in bold font that he is “pregnant”. But if you follow his post to the end, you can find out the April fool hash tag.

Even, Afghan net users didn’t spared president Ghani by mocking some of his public messages across the Kabul city, reading as he is “fully determined to rebuild Afghanistan by the force of its youths.”

However, it has been many years that Afghans do somehow commemorate the day by sharing funny and shocking lies, still there are some people who condemn the day as a harsh culture.

Four Daesh militants were killed and a fifth was arrested in an operation in Kabul on Wednesday. 

According to Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesman of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA), forces had conducted a raid on an “important nest of the enemy” in Karte-e-Sakhi area in PD3. 

The operation was launched at about 11.30am but a shootout between IEA and Daesh militants broke out, which lasted several hours. The situation was eventually brought under control and a cache of weapons and ammunition was recovered. 

Mujahid said in a series of tweets that the Daesh cell had been planning to attack Shiites in the Kart-e-Sakhi area during the upcoming Muharram. 

Meanwhile, the ministry of interior said in a statement that two security personnel, including a policewoman, were killed in the standoff and four IEA soldiers were wounded.

Iran is reportedly sending a delegation from the ministry of energy affairs to Afghanistan to discuss their water share rights regarding the Helmand River.

According to Iran’s IRNA news agency, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian told Afghanistan’s acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi in a phone conversation that he is dispatching the delegation in the near future in order to resolve issues around water.

IRNA reported that Amirabdollahian raised the issue of recent heavy rainfall in Afghanistan and expressed hope that the “artificially created obstacles” in the way of the flow of water towards Iran will be eliminated and Iran will receive its water share from the Helmand River.

Amirabdollahian also reportedly told Muttaqi that receiving their share of water will be an important index for Kabul in terms of showing how committed the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) is about meeting “their international commitments”, IRNA reported.

Amirabdollahian said the people of Iran’s Sistan and Baluchestan and their representatives in Parliament are seriously demanding their share of water and that unless the issue is resolved quickly, “it will affect the other issues in bilateral cooperation negatively”, IRNA reported.

According to IRNA, Muttaqi in turn welcomed the delegation’s upcoming visit and said Afghanistan is committed to giving Iran their share of water from the Helmand River, which flows into the country.

Amirabdollahian said that a joint team of technicians will survey the river’s path and ensure both countries benefit from the water.

China added a laboratory to its permanent space station Monday as it moves toward completing the structure in coming months.

After 13 hours of flight, it successfully docked with the Tiangong station’s main Tianhe living module early Monday according to the China Manned Space Agency.

The Wentian is designed for science and biology experiments, and 23-ton lab module is heavier than any other single-module spacecraft currently in space, according to the state-owned Global Times.

It will be followed by a second lab module, the Mengtian, due to be launched in October.

Three astronauts are currently living in the core module on a six-month mission and oversaw the Wentian’s arrival.
