The Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) today released its “Annual Report on Civilian Deaths in 2020”. As in previous years, the report states that the use of grenades, roadside mines, targeted assassinations, rocket attacks, suicide bombings, ground warfare and airstrikes has resulted in heavy casualties and property damage to civilians.
