Targeted assassinations in Afghanistan

Recent statistics show that 31% of the total civilian casualties in the first six months of this year in the country constitute targeted assassinations. The death toll rose to 945 civilians (women, children, journalists, human rights activists, government civil servants and other Afghan citizens) as a result of the mass killings, who had no involvement in the war.

We condemn any attack on civilians as inhumane and in violation of international law, and urge the Government of Afghanistan and the international community to immediately investigate the targeted assassinations in Afghanistan.
