Taliban Kills Or Wounds 24 Civilians Everyday: NSC Spox

National Security Council (NSC) spokesperson Javid Faisal accused the Taliban of 24 civilian casualties every day in Afghanistan.

Faisal tweeted out the data on Tuesday: “On average, the Taliban has carried out 44 attacks and killed or wounded 24 civilians every day in Afghanistan since the February 22 reduction in violence week.”

The reduction in violence referred to the week leading up to the signing of the Doha peace deal between the U.S. and the Taliban. Monitoring agencies said violence was at an all-time low then, before it increased again.

Faisal called for a reduction in violence in Afghanistan.

“The success of the Doha deal and peace in Afghanistan requires an immediate reduction in violence and the start of direct talks.”

The Taliban has not commented on the data.
