Fast 6.000 afghanische Zivilisten wurden 2020 getötet oder verwundet

October 28, 2020 - Fast 6.000 afghanische Zivilisten wurden in den ersten neun Monaten von 2020 getötet oder verwundet, da die schweren Gefechte zwischen Regierungstruppen und Taliban anhalten, wie die UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan berichtet.

Civilian casualties were 30 percent lower than in the same period last year but UNAMA said violence has failed to slow since the beginning of talks between government negotiators and the Taliban that began in the Qatari capital of Doha last month, according to Reuters.

The Taliban were responsible for 45 percent of civilian casualties while government troops caused 23 percent, the report said. U.S.-led international forces were responsible for two percent.

Ground fighting caused the most casualties followed by suicide and roadside bomb attacks, targeted killings by the Taliban and air strikes by Afghan forces, the UN mission said.
