?????????????????????????????A statement issued online by the leadership of Taliban orders their fighters “Mujahideen” take precautionary actions to reduce civilian casualties.

The statement tells fighters to even be careful with animals and civilian properties.

According to the statement those failing to obey will be answerable to the Islamic Emirate.

Taliban’s statement might be an answer to UNAMA’s call which urged all sides to reduce civilian casualties.

UNAMA last month had expressed concerns over the increase of civilian casualties in Afghanistan.

The recorded civilian casualties last year was nearly 10, 000.

UNAMA stated in a report published last month that this was the highest number of civilian casualties ever recorded by the UN agencies in Afghanistan.
