The Independent Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has called on the Taliban to stop roadside bombings
The Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) has expressed concern over the increase in roadside bombings that have killed civilians and called on the Taliban to stop using landmines.
The Independent Human Rights Commission (IHRC) said in a statement on Thursday that civilian casualties from roadside bombs were a gross violation of human rights and a war crime.
The commission has called on the Taliban to specifically stop using roadside bombs that cause the deliberate killing of innocent people. The AIHRC has also called on the government to provide justice for victims of security incidents and to crack down on the perpetrators.
It remains to be seen whether the Taliban will comply with the request of the Independent Human Rights Commission.
Meanwhile, roadside mines have occasionally killed civilians, and in the latest case, on Tuesday, 29 passenger cars collided with roadside mines in Jalriz district of Maidan Wardak province, killing 10 civilians. They lost and 9 others were wounded.
