Fact Check 

We checked Google maps and we found the claim made by these media houses inaccurate. The Esfandi village is not in the Jaghori district, it is a village in the Ghazni district of Afghanistan. Facebook post published by MRRD  on February.15.2021, states clearly that the village is located in the Ghazni district of Afghanistan. As well the comments received on the RTA Dari`s post also emphasize the fact that Esfandi village is about 8 kilometers far away from the Jaghori district.
