Out of these 228 incidents, 167 are caused by the American invaders and their internal mercenary forces, whereas Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate are responsible for 32 of them. Similarly, 29 incidents are caused by Daish (ISIL) and other unknown elements.
Thus, American and their internal stooge forces are responsible for 73.24% incident. Mujahidin are involved in 14.03%; whereas Daish (ISIL) and unknown groups are blamed for 12.71% out of the total 228 incidents mentioned above.

Among them, 460 were martyred by the American invaders and their internal mercenary forces; 186 persons were martyred by Daish (ISIL) and the unknown elements; whereas 40 people were martyred during Mujahidin attacks.
In the above 693 civilian casualties, 527 were men, 73 were women, and the remaining 93 were innocent children.
Among the total 693 martyred people, American occupying forces and their internal mercenary in-security forces are responsible for 66.37% civilian casualties; 26.83% are caused by Daish (ISIL) and the unknown elements; whereas Mujahidin are held responsible for 5.77% of these casualties.

According to the investigation of the ‘Independent Organ of the Islamic Emirate for the Prevention of Civilian Casualties and Enquiry of Grievances’, American occupiers and their internal mercenary forces are responsible for 51.11%; Daish (ISIL) and unknown elements are involved in 44.40%; where Mujahidin are behind 4.47% of the above mentioned 894 civilians wounded.
In this way the total number of civilian losses and casualties, including martyred and wounded persons, in the third quarter of 2016 (i.e. August, September and October) reached to 1587.
It is worth mentioning that the ‘Independent Organ of the Islamic Emirate for the Prevention of Civilian Casualties and Enquiry of Grievances’ has conducted a thorough investigation as directed by the esteemed leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in all those incidents of civilian losses and casualties which were caused by Mujahidin. The dossiers of the perpetrators have been handed over to the ‘Military Courts’ of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, and those proved guilty, have been penalized according to the Islamic Sharia Law. Similarly, an understanding and reconciliation have been made by extending condolence, sympathy and support to all those individuals and families who had suffered in the above mentioned incidents due to Mujahidin’s negligence.
According to the available facts and figures, it is obvious that the American invaders, their internal stooge forces and Daish (ISIL) related fighters are responsible for a greater and significant part of the above mentioned civilian losses and casualties of the third quarter of 2016.
