SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – According to UN report released on Friday (19 Dec.) at least 3,188 Afghan civilians have been killed in the intensifying war with the Taliban in 2014, making it the deadliest year on record for non-combatants.

“The situation for civilians in Afghanistan is becoming increasingly dire,” said Georgette Gagnon, human rights director for the U.N. mission in Kabul. A total of 3,188 civilian deaths and 6,429 injuries puts 2014 on track to be the first year on record that combined civilian casualties will pass 10,000.

 

“That is very worrying,” said Gagnon, calling on all sides to do more to protect civilians.
