Afghan Civilian Casualties Hit Record High Amid Rapid Taliban Gains

A United Nations monitor issued figures on Monday showing that civilian casualties in Afghanistan have soared over the period the United States began rapidly withdrawing forces ahead of Biden's declared full exit, which is to be accomplished before the symbolic date of September 11.

Civilian casualties in the war-torn country hit record highs for the first half of the year, the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said in its report. "In May and June alone, when the Taliban began its surge of attacks, 783 civilians were killed and 1,609 were injured," the group indicated according to The Hill, which notes further: "In just those two months, the civilian casualties neared the total from January through April, when 876 civilians were killed and 1,915 were injured, the mission added."
