63 Civilians Killed in ‘Taliban Attacks’ in Afghanistan: MoI

Kabul (HRNW) The Taliban is responsible for 62 blasts and an additional 6 suicide bombings in the last 11 days, killing 63 civilians and wounding 180 more, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said in a statement on Sunday.

“Women and children are also among the victims,” the statement said, adding that “Taliban fighters–including commanders–have also been killed in response” by security forces.

The Taliban has not yet commented on the MoI statement.

On April 14, a new UN report indicated that 573 civilians were killed and 1,210 more were wounded in the first three months of this year, a 29 percent increase compared with the same period in 2020.

The report says that “extraordinary levels of harm inflicted on civilians” in the Afghan conflict continues unabated.
