The fighting has become more violent and serious
According to the report, the increase in the number of civilians killed and injured since May 1 is a matter of concern. International military forces are withdrawing from here and the fighting with the Taliban has become more violent and serious. According to this, almost the same number of civilian casualties were reported in the period May-June as in the previous four months.
Here in May-June 783 civilians were killed and 1609 were injured. The figure given by UNAMA in 2009 was the highest for these months. Between January and April this year, 876 civilians were killed and 1915 were injured amid the withdrawal of US troops and the increasing aggression of the Taliban.
Focus on the impact on the common citizens of the country
According to UNAMA President Debra Lyon, she urges the leaders of the Taliban and Afghanistan to pay attention to the dire consequences of the conflict and its devastating impact on ordinary citizens of the country. The report clearly warns that this year will see an unprecedented number of Afghan civilian casualties if the escalating violence is not stopped.
