Amnesty International has called on the world to take the situation in Afghanistan seriously, as it says the ongoing war in the country is killing civilians every day.

In October alone, bombings, clashes, and airstrikes in several provinces killed at least 180 civilians and wounded 380 others.

“The world must sit up and take notice. Afghan civilians are being slaughtered on a daily basis” Amnesty press release quotes Omar Waraich, Head of South Asia at Amnesty International.

Amnesty International has once again called on both sides of the conflict to prevent civilian casualties and take this matter seriously.

The organization said that despite the ongoing inter-Afghan peace talks in Doha, the war in Afghanistan is continuously taking the lives of human beings, especially civilians.  

Amnesty reports at a time when bombings, clashes, and airstrikes in Ghor, Helmand, Wardak, and Takhar have killed scores of civilians in October.

UNAMA had reported 1,282 civilians deaths, and 2,176 injuries during the First Half of 2020.
