KABUL: At least 1,153 civilians suffered casualties, “including 397 deaths in Afghanistan” between mid-August 2021 and February 15, 2022, said Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said on Monday in Geneva citing the statistics of the United Nations Assistant Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and the Office High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR).

 “While the decline in hostilities has seen a sharp decrease in civilian casualties, the human rights situation for many Afghans is of profound concern,” Bachelet said. “Several suicide and non-suicide attacks were perpetrated by ISKP against Shi’a Muslims, mostly from the Hazara ethnic group.”

According to her, at least “50 extra-judicial killings “of individuals suspected to be linked to Daesh, including cases of beheadings in the eastern Nangarhar province with bodies left in public places, have also been recorded.

The Islamic Emirate has not made any official remark in regard. However, since the fall of the former government, the level of civilian casualties has significantly dropped.
