The United Nations office in Kabul (UNAMA) published a report about civilian casualties during the past year.
This report – which was clearly one sided – declared that the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate were responsible for 42% of civilian casualties in the country.
It attributed 13% to the Kabul regime and American occupying forces were held responsible for mere 2% civilian casualties in Afghanistan.
The Islamic Emirate strongly rejects this partial report by UNAMA. The report openly sides with the American occupying forces in Afghanistan and tries to cover their crimes.
The entire world is aware that following the declaring of new a strategy by the American president Trump, bombings and raids on civilian homes, public buildings, mosques, Islamic seminaries, populated areas and even bazaars have increased which has daily and repeatedly left civilians martyred and injured as well as their homes and property destroyed.
The world and Afghans are witnesses and the American forces themselves admit that the American invaders have dropped over 4300 bombs on Afghanistan over the past year and have carried out hundreds of raids. And every sound-minded person understands that so many bombings undoubtedly destroy homes and cause civilian casualties.
Moreover the army, police and especially the Arbaki militia of the Kabul regime target civilian homes with mortars and other heavy weaponry in villages and hamlets, martyr civilians including women and children and have jailed thousands of innocent people.
Despite such open crimes and barbarity, only attributing 2% civilians casualties to American and 13% to internal forces throughout the entire year reveals that UNAMA is trying to throw sand into eyes of people and openly sides with the American invaders and their hirelings.
Such reports seek to provide propaganda material against the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate and acquit the invaders – the real source of Afghan tragedy who have been using explosives against our country and have been martyring people for full 17 years – of any wrongdoing.
Unfortunately such reports have been prepared using statistics provided by intelligence circles and enemies of the Afghan people and have completely abstained from looking at the unbiased and fact based end of year report published by the civilian casualty department of the Islamic Emirate.
The Islamic Emirate considers it very unfortunate that the highly sensitive humanitarian issue of civilian casualties is being used as propaganda and pressure tool and such unjust substance is being published under the name of United Nations.
