140 Hospitalized After Terrorists Poison Water At Girls School

At least 140 people at a girls school have been hospitalized after drinking water at a girls school is suspected to have been poisoned by terrorists.

The threat of terrorist poisoning water supplies is a recurring theme from government officials and in the media.

Just a few weeks ago government think tanks released a report revealing that water shortages and fights over water supplies lead to global unrest and will be the target of terrorists to push their agenda.

That report was followed by similar warnings from Hillary Clinton who warned of global water waters by 2030 who again reinforced the notion that terrorists will soon begin attacking water supplies.

Today we have reports that terrorists have poisoned the water supply at a girls school resulting in the hospitalization of at least 140 people.

Immediately, the movie V for Vendetta comes to mind, because the movie focused on the poisoning public water supplies which was reportedly conducted by terrorists.

In the movie our hero learned the poisoning was perpetrated by the ruling political party in the government as part of a power grab to seize control of the government and implement a totalitarian state of rule.

In response, our hero took over the state controlled news station and broadcasted the following speech which helped spark the revolution against the Totalitarian government.

There is no confirmation that terrorist have conducted the attack, but media is clearly reporting this was conducted by extremists Taliban terrorists.

RT is reporting officials suspect Taliban terrorists while CNN is implying the same.

140 poisoned at girls school

(CNN)– At least 140 Afghan schoolgirls and female teachers were admitted to a local hospital after their drinking water was poisoned, health officials say, laying the blame on extremists opposed to women’s education.

The victims range in age from 14 to 30 and were taken to a hospital in Afghanistan’s northeastern Takhar province on Tuesday after their school’s water tank was contaminated, according to provincial health department director Dr. Hafizullah Safi.

It is currently unclear if it was a chemical or bacterial contamination in the water. Bacterial water infections can be common in developing and war-torn countries. Unlike the west, who can gain easy access to water boiling units like those from Kings Water, it can be difficult to procure such water treatments in a poorer economy. However, many suspect that the contamination was intentional.


“It is the work of those who are against girls’ education and peace and stability in Afghanistan,” district administrator Malem Hussain said. Many Afghan girls were not allowed to attend school during the Taliban’s rule from 1996 to 2001, but girls’ schools began reopening after the regime was toppled by the U.S.-led invasion.

Observers say, however, that abuse of women remains common in the post-Taliban era and often accepted in conservative and traditional families, where women are barred from education and commonly subjected to domestic violence.

Female educational facilities, students and teachers have come under vicious attack as the insurgency has spread outside Taliban strongholds in the southern provinces of Kandahar and Helmand.

Scores of Afghan schoolgirls poisoned in suspected Taliban attack

About 150 Afghan schoolgirls have been poisoned at a high school in the country’s north after drinking contaminated water. Officials suspect conservative radicals, who oppose female education.

“We are 100 per cent sure that the water they drank inside their classes was poisoned. This is either the work of those who are against girls’ education or irresponsible armed individuals,” Reuters quoted Jan Mohammad Nabizada, a spokesman for education department in northern Takhar province.

The girls suffered from headaches and vomiting. Some were in critical condition, while others were sent home after treatment in hospital.

“This is not a natural illness. It’s an intentional act to poison schoolgirls,” said Haffizullah Safi, head of Takhar’s public health department.

Since the Taliban was toppled in 2001 females have returned to schools, especially in the country’s capital, Kabul.

However, attacks on female schools still occur, especially in the more conservative south and east of the country.

Afghan authorities said last year that the Taliban no longer opposes to female education as it is trying to advance exploratory peace talks,

But the movement has never confirmed this officially. Education for women was outlawed by Taliban between 1996 and 2001.

The Afghan Education Ministry report for 2006 shows that about 20 teachers were killed and more than a 100 schools set on fire in different parts of Afghanistan.
