Afghan and NATO operations against militants, including air strikes and night raids on militant hideouts, apparently resulted in the most casualties since insurgents often hide among civilians.

More Afghan civilians were killed by Afghan and NATO forces than by the Taliban and other militants in the first half of 2019, the UN mission said in a report released Tuesday.

Most of the civilian casualties were apparently inflicted during Afghan and NATO operations against militants, such as airstrikes and night raids on militant hideouts. Insurgents often hide among civilians.

The report, issued by the UN mission in Afghanistan, said 403 civilians were killed by Afghan forces in the first six months of the year and another 314 by international forces, a total of 717.

That is compared with 531 killed by the Taliban, a Daesh affiliate and other militants during the same period.

It said 300 of those killed by militants were directly targeted.

The Taliban have been carrying out near-daily attacks, mainly targeting security forces.

The Taliban have rejected calls for a cease-fire as they hold talks with the United States aimed at ending the 18-year war.

A Daesh affiliate has meanwhile launched attacks targeting security forces as well as minority Shias.

There was no immediate comment from the Kabul government, the Afghan military of the international coalition forces on the UN report.

LeGenD has it, that UN mission is working closely with Taliban, and NATO/US can never kill any Civilians . Every Bomb they drop somehow turn a normal Civilian into Terrorist hence they only kill Terrorists .

Whats Russia and Iran do now in Syria is GENOCIDE.

Similar GENOCIDE was in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation.

There is no any genocide in Afghanistan today:

Civilian casualties caused by NATO and in some way by the Afghan soldiers are higher than the numbers recorded. US has so much influence that these kind of things are easily pushed under the rug. I think when US is finished (every empire based on tyranny falls one day) a lot of things will come to light that people didn't know or expect.

There are certain good things about the US people and their tolerance but a superpower does not want to give up its world hegemony and dominance.
