Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
Commission for Military Affairs
Department for the Prevention of Civilian Casualties
Second Quarterly Report (May, June & July) 2016
In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful
From the very beginning of illegitimate foreign occupation of our beloved homeland Afghanistan, the lives and properties of our civilian countrymen are once again seriously imperiled, as the Afghans are enforced into a futile war imposed by the foreign invaders and their internal supporters. The invaders have always scorned the human lives and dignity of our people having no reverence for them. They want to achieve their malicious objectives even at the cost of shedding the blood of innocent people, and the ongoing calamity and tragedy in our country is the inevitable outcome of such a conspiracy. Our civilian and defenseless countrymen are losing their lives and properties on the daily basis. Having no connection with warring sides, still their lives are not peaceful and tranquil. Their homes are raided, bombed and demolished. Their children are killed in indiscriminate attacks. They are brutally tortured and vexed. Eventually, they are suffering from extreme adversities in their everyday lives.
The Islamic Emirate has sacrificed all pleasures of life to protect the sacred creed of its people and to defend our beloved country. Its devoted members have left no stone unturned by working day and night to perpetuate the cause of Holy Jihad while suffering excruciating hardships, adversities, incarcerations and even sacrificing their own lives.
In the hierarchy of the Islamic Emirate, the Department for the Prevention of Civilian Casualties has been established by its leadership to protect the lives of ordinary people. Being fully authoritative, its main obligation is to deliberate and find out all possible ways and means of safeguarding the lives and properties of our civilian people.
One of the main steps undertaken for the protection of civilian lives is that the prevailing circumstances inside the country are discussed and analyzed so that an accurate reliable figure of civilian losses and casualties is achieved. The extent, quantity and quality of these losses is assessed, and a trustworthy comprehensive report is prepared and provided to the world community, to our own people, the warring sides and to the leadership of the Islamic Emirate; so that decisive steps could be taken in the reduction of these losses and casualties; and the real perpetrators, criminals and convicts of these felonies are identified and held responsible.
For this purpose, the Department for Prevention of Civilian Casualties has prepared, for the second time, a quarterly report comprising May, June and July of 2016, which is based on verified facts, proved information and on a direct contact with civilian victims.
The Department for the Prevention of Civilian Casualties is obliged to exert its utmost effort in collecting information of such incidents and then present it to our esteemed readers with great integrity and honesty.
Unfortunately, the second quarterly report of 2016 once again expresses heavy civilian losses and casualties in fighting and confrontations; i.e. we have been the witness of several civilian losses and casualties.
During this time, our department has registered 188 civilian incidents on the basis of verified information, in which, overall 1033 civilians were martyred and injured. Among them, 401 defenseless countrymen have lost their lives and 632 others were injured.
The foreign American invaders, their mercenary army, police force and the notorious Arbaki militiamen are responsible for 124 of the above mentioned incidents; while 26 of these incidents have occurred during Mujahidin attacks or operations which is regretful for us.
On the other side, 38 additional incidents have been registered due to ‘Daish’ (i.e. ISIL), unidentified armed-men and other internal skirmishes.
In the light of above facts and figures, American invaders, the mercenary army, police and unrestrained Arbaki militiamen of stooge setup in Kabul is responsible for 66% of these incidents; Mujahidin are involved in 14% of such incidents, while the remaining 24% incidents were caused by ‘Daish’, unidentified armed-men and internal confrontations.
Among the deceased people, 286 were men, 50 were women and the remaining 65 were children.
Among the injured people, 469 were men, 29 were women and the remaining 114 were children.
According to the evaluation and investigation of the Department for Prevention of Civilian Casualties of the Islamic Emirate, among the total 401 civilians killed, 236 persons were martyred by the American invaders and the amateurish soldiers, policemen and notorious Arbaki militiamen of stooge Kabul regime.
115 of our oppressed countrymen lost their lives in the futile battles of ‘Daish’ fighters, unidentified gunmen and their own internal skirmishes, while 50 more civilians were killed due to the negligence in Mujahidin attacks.
The above digits show that 59% of civilian people were martyred by American invaders, the mercenary army, police force and Arbaki militiamen of the puppet regime of Kabul. ‘Daish’ and unidentified armed groups are accountable for 29% of these casualties, while Mujahidin are responsible for the remaining 12% loses.
In the overall 632 injured persons, 266 were wounded by American invaders and their affiliated stooge soldiers, policemen and Arbakis; 311 persons were injured by ‘Daish’, unknown armed-men and internal fighting; while 55 persons were wounded due to Mujahidin’s negligence.
The above figures of wounded civilians reveal that American invaders and their affiliates are responsible for 42% cases; ‘Daish’, unknown armed groups and internal fighting and feuds bear 49.30% responsibility; while 8.70% people were injured by Mujahidin.

By the grace of Almighty Allah, cation level of Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate has been significantly increased during recent military operations. The best and latest proofs at hand are the two most recent attacks inside Kabul; one of them in ‘Qasaba’ area of Kabul, in which, a police convoy was targeted; and the other one carried out on a foreign guest house inside Kabul. Though quite heavy explosives were used in these two attacks, resulting in heavy casualties and losses for both the foreign invaders and their internal mercenaries, but the amount of civilian losses was next to cypher as no ordinary people were harmed or injured in these two huge assaults.
The department for the prevention of civilian casualties and losses, owing to its religious and national obligations, calls upon all warring sides to take their utmost precautionary measures regarding the safety and security of ordinary civilian lives during fighting. The lives of innocent people should be paid due attention and reverence; and no Islamic and human values should be neglected and violated in this regard.
