From the time American and her NATO allies invaded our beloved homeland Afghanistan up until this very day, they have ruthlessly martyred our innocent and defenseless countrymen, elders, youth, women and children, looted their reserves, bombed and destroyed their villages, bazaars, mosques, schools, madaris and business centers. This series of misery and tragedy continues unabated and the foreign invaders with the support of their domestic stooges commit such deliberate attacks on our innocent people every year.
From the day the Commission for Prevention of Civilian Casualties and Complaints was founded by the Islamic Emirate until now, it has registered hundreds of detailed tragic and ruthless incidents of civilian losses at the hands of the invaders. It is similarly taken all necessary steps for their prevention so that the international community can understand the true face of the ruthless American invaders. In order that the people of the world grasp the suffering of the Afghan nation, the said commission has prepared a detailed report on civilian casualties for the year 2018 based on testimony of witnesses and primary sources.
Like the years past, 2018 was also a bloody year of civilian losses for our fellow countrymen. The Commission for Prevention of Civilian Casualties and Complaints has recorded 1029 civilian casualty incidents based on reports collected from its own provincial officers, news channels, tribal elders and locals. Of these, a total of 865 incidents or 83% were committed by the Americans, army, police and militias of the stooge administration; 136 incidents or 14% were committed by Daesh or unknown individuals and 28 incidents or 3% were due to domestic feuds.
On top of the above human losses inflicted on our countrymen, the foreign invaders specifically the Americans have begun a systematic campaign of destruction through airstrikes and raids since the month of August 2018 during which time a total of 606 homes, 85 mosques, 495 shops and 51 schools and religious seminaries have been destroyed along with the destruction of 398 motorbikes, 58 small vehicles, 8 tractors, 8210 fruit trees and 3 boats.
Civilians Casualties: 2017 vs 2018
2018 was comparably bloodier to 2017 relating to civilian casualties. In the year 2017, the Commission for Prevention of Civilians Casualties documented a total of 926 civilian casualty incidents whereas these incidents rose to 1029 in the year 2018.
Moreover, the attacks, raids and bombings by US forces and stooge administration forces in 2017 resulted in the martyrdom of 1186 civilians whereas the death toll increased in 2018 to 2029.
The main cause behind this spike in the deliberate mass targeting of civilians in night raids, airstrikes on crowded villages, bazaars, schools, religious seminaries, mosques and business centers as well as the deliberate destruction of livelihoods including hundreds of homes and transport vehicles and thousands of fruit trees, all of which will be recorded by history as crimes against humanity.
The Commission for Civilian Casualties and Complaints of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has shared reports about these crimes with human right and humanitarian organizations during meetings and has held discussions about their prevention. The said commission has always condemned and labeled this mass murder and destruction of civilian property by the Americans and their allies as crimes against humanity. On the other hand, this commission has opened channels for the public to pursue any case they may have against any junior or senior Mujahid in the court of law. Moreover, any high-ranking official found guilty of committing a crime after an investigation will be treated as any common individual and the said commission has solved many public complaints and cases against during 2018 between officials of Islamic Emirate and a common citizen. Like the years past, the commission dispatched authoritative teams to various provinces of the country to collect complaints of the public and send reports to the Leadership Office. The Islamic Emirate created this commission to become a tool for the safety and development of the public and prevent casualties to civilians because one of the most important goals of the Jihad of Islamic Emirate is the security of our countrymen.
