Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (The Taliban): "Response of the Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan about Civilian Casualties Survey"
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (the Taliban) has released a statement titled, "Response of the Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan about Civilian Casualties Survey". Responding to a UN report "blaming the Mujahideen for most of the civilian casualties", the Taliban announced that it regards "such press releases [as] based on one-sidedness and dogmatism instead of neutrality and justification by related organizations and mainstream media outlets which not only encourage the ISAF forces to keep harassing the masses and causing further civilian deaths but also exacerbate and intensify the tragedy rather than minimizing the effect and slowing down the civilian casualties…" The Taliban proposed that "A committee, consisting of special representatives of Islamic Conference[s], UN human rights organizations, as well as representatives from ISAF forces and [the] Islamic of Emirate of Afghanistan, should be formed to assess the very issue and conduct investigations into the civilian casualties across the country."
