Thank you Desibot, it looks like some kind of Service medals. The word " Kunarha كنرها " may referred to " Kunar كنر " Province, located in the northeastern Afghanistan on border with Pakistan.

 :applause: Maythem ! well seen for Kunar !

And at bottom of the 1st picture  there is the word  "Hedmat "

I found this comment for another type of "Kunar 1324" medal:
"Hedmat-Kunarho-1324".
The literal translation is "Merit. Kunar 1324" (1324 SH is the year 1945) .
The medal is intended to be awarded for the suppression of the Pashtun uprising in the small northeastern province of Kunar, on the border with Pakistan


You can see details of this revolt here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghan_tribal_revolts_of_1944%E2%80%931947)

Thank you Saro, because of the word " Khidmat خدمت " on first photo, which means Service, I called it "Service Medal".

I agree with you, what is written on the medal is the pashto word "khidmat" which means "service" and not "hedmat"
