1,325 Afghan Civilians Killed So Far This Year

The Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission is reporting at least 1,325 Afghan civilians have been killed so far this year. That’s a six percent increase over the same period last year. The commission blamed the Taliban and its allies for roughly two-thirds of the killings. US and international forces were blamed for just under a quarter of the civilian deaths.
