Remarks by Spokesman of Islamic Emirate regarding report published by UNAMA

Remarks by Spokesman of Islamic Emirate regarding report published by UNAMA

Today UNAMA published a report in Kabul highlighting civilian casualties in the first six months of this year.

Even thought UNAMA did point out that a large portion of civilian casualties have been caused by American airstrikes and night raids in the first half of this year however they failed to publish the true extent of casualties.

Similarly, the percentage of civilian casualties attributed to the Islamic Emirate is also of full glaring holes and rejected by us.

An active department for the prevention of civilian casualties is operating on behalf of the Islamic Emirate that thoroughly investigates every civilian casualty incident and prevents its reoccurrence. Moreover, no attack has been deliberately or specifically carried out against a civilian target.

Yet the report by UNAMA has still falsely attributed 38% of all civilian casualties to the Islamic Emirate.

UNAMA report has attributed attacks to the Islamic Emirate that have been rejected by us at the time of occurrence.

Additionally, individuals that are working in enemy ranks and actively supporting the enemy in military and intelligence departments have been given a civilian status.

On the other hand, the invaders responsible for 80% of civilian casualties and directly involved in or playing a supporting role in every civilian casualty incident, have only been blamed for 18% of total losses which is clear injustice as witnessed by our entire nation.

The Islamic Emirate advises all humanitarian and right organizations including UNAMA that effective steps for the prevention of civilian casualties can only be taken when a thorough investigation is carried out about each incident, real perpetrators as requirements demand are highlighted and a humanitarian issue such as civilian casualties is kept separate from politics.
