Afghanistan saw violence against civilians rise despite peace negotiations – UN report

Afghanistan saw violence against civilians rise despite peace negotiations – UN report

rt - 1 week ago

A UN report has laid out the terrible suffering endured by Afghan citizens throughout 2020, despite peace talks taking place, leaving the country as one of the deadliest places in the world for a civilian.

While figures state that the total number of civilian casualties in 2020 (8,820) was 15 percent lower than the previous year, the data shows that there was a significant spike in civilian casualties in the final three months of the year, after peace talks began in the country.

The international body sees the continued violence as the devastating consequence of “parties refusing to consider a ceasefire,” using the report to issue a renewed call for a break in the fighting to allow peace talks to proceed uninterrupted.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet warned that the statistics show that Afghanistan still “remains among the deadliest places in the world to be a civilian.”
