In March 1924 it was governed by Amr al-Din.[2] A dispute between him and a local magistrate led to the Khost rebellion, which saw the entire province rise up against King Amanullah. The rebellion lasted until January 1925, and 14,000 people perished as a result of it.[2]
In 1944–1947, the province was the scene of revolts by various tribes.
As of 1946, it had a population of 882,170.[1]
It was dissolved in 1964 to create the province of Paktia.[1]
