The National Security Council (NSC) says the Taliban have killed 337 civilians, wounded 452 other and abducted 164 others since the signing of the peace agreement with the United States.
NSC said that the Taliban have failed to stand by their commitments for peace.
“They (the Taliban) have stepped up their assassination efforts since the signing of the peace agreement and have harmed hundreds of Afghan men, women and children. The Taliban must reconcile its actions with its claims to peace,” the NSC said.
However, the Taliban’s spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid has rejected the claims by NSC.
This comes as the UN in a report said that in the first quarter of 2020, the number of civilian casualties in Afghanistan fell by nearly a third from the same period a year earlier, representing the lowest first quarter figure since 2012.
