4.SOUNDBITE (English) Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General:
“There have been fewer [civilian] casualties in the first half of 2020 compared to the same time period last year - mainly due to the reduction in operations by international military forces and Da'esh in Khorasan. However, the new report by the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said that there has been no reduction in civilian casualties caused by the Taliban and Afghan national security forces. The Secretary-General’s Special Representative, Deborah Lyons, urges the parties to reflect on the harm they are causing to the Afghan people and to take decisive action to stop the carnage and get to the negotiating table.”
