According to a study released by Brown University on the 7th, the number of civilian deaths in Afghanistan caused by the United States-led air strikes has increased by 330% since 2017.
In 2019 alone, about 700 Afghan civilians died in air strikes by the U.S. military, the highest number of deaths among Afghan civilians since the United States launched the war in Afghanistan in 2001.
According to a previously released investigation report by the United Nations, from January to March 2019
more civilians died in military operations such as the coalition forces than those killed in attacks by the
Taliban and other armed groups in Afghanistan, which was the first time since the outbreak of the war in Afghanistan.
