íViolence Reductioní Must Mean íNo Civ. Casualtiesí: Amnesty.org

Amnesty International on Friday, in a message aimed at the US and the Taliban, stated that any potential agreement on the reduction in violence must include a commitment by both sides to abide by the laws of war and end all attacks on civilians.



"The USA and the Afghan Talibanís negotiations over a reduction in violence must include a commitment by both sides to abide by the laws of war and end all attacks on civilians," the watchdog said on Friday as senior negotiators from the US and the Taliban work towards signing a peace deal in Doha.

The statement comes as the Afghan government has called on the Taliban insurgents to agree to a nationwide ceasefire-- not a reduction in violence-- before signing any peace agreement and before planned intra-Afghan talks.

The Taliban have constantly refused to accept the demand for a ceasefire.

"In a conflict marked by attacks on civilians, the term ‘violence reductioní is an absurdity. There can be no acceptable level of violence. The USA and the Afghan Taliban must commit to abide by the laws of war and end all attacks on Afghan civilians," said Omar Waraich, Deputy South Asia Director at Amnesty International.

On January 3, the Afghan Ministry of Interior released a report on the toll of the conflict on civilians in the country, claiming that 2,219 civilians were killed and another 5,170 were wounded in 2019.

The time period measured is from September 16, 2018, to September 10, 2019.

According to the report, August, September and October 2019 were the most deadly months for the Afghan civilians during last year.
