“For the good of all Afghanistan it’s time for both sides to lower levels of violence, release the necessary prisoners, call a halt to fighting over next week’s Eid and start talks immediately afterwards.”

The UNAMA statement further said that at a time when Afghans should be together, discussing peace in intra-Afghan negotiations, there is a “spiralling cycle of violence.”

“Terrible numbers of Afghans from all walks of life being killed or injured,” it said.

They said that the attacks in civilian-populated areas, including ground engagements, airstrikes and IEDs are inflicting an “appalling toll” on Afghans, with a disproportionate impact on women and children.
