Просмотреть
The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) says the mission’s
preliminary findings indicate that as many as 23 civilians were killed and
three injured Tuesday in an airstrike in Garmser district of Helmand
province during operations conducted by pro-government forces against
Taliban in the area.

UNAMA in a statement said initial findings indicate that the vast majority
of the victims were women and children. “The Mission is actively working to
verify information indicating up to 10 children were killed along with
eight women, and three children were injured, including an eight-year-old
boy.”

The statement further added that the incident took place during an
operation involving Afghan and international military forces, when
international military forces conducted an airstrike following engagements
between the forces on the ground and Taliban.

According to UNAMA, in addition, three days earlier, during fighting
between Taliban and pro-government forces, three civilian homes were
struck by explosive ordnance in Nad-e-Ali district of Helmand province,
killing two civilians and injuring at least 14 more, including 10
children, reportedly after Taliban initiated an attack from the vicinity
of civilian homes against an Afghan National Army convoy returning to its
base.

“The Mission welcomes indications that relevant authorities have initiated
investigations into the civilian casualty reports, and it will continue its
independent enquiries to establish additional facts, sharing the findings
with parties as part of advocacy efforts for improved mitigation measures
in their future operations to prevent civilian casualties,” UNAMA added.
