According to the US Department of Defense, currently, the Taliban are actively and publicly operating in 70 percent of Afghanistan. The year of 97 was the bloodiest year for the people of Afghanistan, full of terrorist attacks, intensified conflict, the Taliban captured more areas, and the ISIL continued to attack many of the civilian and military forces with its attacks in Afghanistan.
1 Hamal 1397
This year was began with bloody attacks, during an attack near Kabul University and the Aliabad Hospital, at the first day of Nowruz in which the most casualties had occurred to civilians.
The fall of the center of two provinces continues:
In the year 97, two provinces including Ghazni and Farah were temporarily held by the Taliban, but the Taliban did not manage to capture them for a longer time. The four-day fighting in Ghazni has led to an increase in military casualties, more than 100 military and nearly 30 civilians have died in the battle.
These changes, which arose in the security situation in Afghanistan, reduced the credibility of the government to the people, while the Taliban continued to carry out massive assaults in the fall of 97, which launched a major assault on Jaghori, Malistan, and Daikundi has caused civilian casualties.
30 Aqrab 1397
In 30 Aqrab, dozens of Islamic Clerks witnessed the bloodiest attack in order to celebrate Milad Al-Nabi in the Oranos Hotel, in which 55 people died and 94 others were wounded, the most victims of religious scholars they were.
The year 97 was also the bloodiest time for the Sikh ethnicity in Afghanistan. At least 19 people died in the suicide attack among the Sikh citizens of the country. In Nangarhar, the incident was the first terrorist attack on Sikh citizens in the 17 years that he was headed. Most Hindu settlers immigrated to India.
ISIL has caused civilian casualties to be higher than the past, by launching bloody attacks on Afghan Shiite followers. At least 48 people were killed and 67 were injured by all students, as a result of the attack on the Mawoud Education Center. At least 30 civilians died and 45 others were killed including two news reporters. In another attack which was launched by ISIL on the Maywand wrestling club in western part of the capital.
According to the findings of Pasbanan, close to 15 million people, half the population of the country, live in areas that are either under the control of the Taliban or in areas that are under Taliban rule. The Taliban have a clear presence in about 14 districts of Afghanistan (4 percent of Afghanistan’s territory), and are active and openly seen in 253 other districts (66 percent of Afghanistan’s territory). The Taliban in areas that have an active presence and publicity have been shaken by launching terrorist attacks against government forces in a group and in a separate form, the discipline of society.
Central Bureau assessments show that 54 percent of Afghans are below the poverty line. But in 1395, these figures reached 38%. That means the rate of poverty in the country has risen by 20 percent over the next two years. And poverty is increasing every day in the country. In a recent report by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Assistance (UNHCR), more than two million Afghan citizens are at risk of food insecurity. The agency said 445,000 people were displaced from their homes because of insecurity. It’s now that Dr. Mohammad Ashraf Ghani’s biggest campaign slogan is that changes in the lives of citizens are in the hands of the people.
In the year 1396, although 10,000 Afghan troops have been killed and wounded, in the first year, 97 were more than in 1396. But the United Nations has written in its report that during the first six months of the year 97 (1692) civilians have lost their lives in attacks by terrorist groups. In a UN report, a total of 5,000 suicide attacks, armed attacks have been carried out in the first six months. This is the largest number of 10 years ago.
Civilian deaths were reported to be 54 percent in air strikes. In these attacks, 149 were killed and 204 were injured.
Eventually, insurgent attacks across Afghanistan have hurt civilians more than any other group, as the escape of citizens from Afghanistan has been the spread of insecurity throughout the country.
