The Afghan government and the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) on Tuesday raised serious concerns over what they described as a significant surge in the number of Taliban attacks in the country, even after the group signed a peace agreement with the United States on February 29 in Doha.

According to AIHRC, at least 83 Afghan civilians were killed, 35 civilians were taken hostage and 119 others were wounded in different parts of the country following the US-Taliban peace agreement.

The human rights commission holds the Taliban responsible for 50 percent of the civilian casualties.

The AIHRC blamed other insurgent groups such as Daesh for the remaining 50 percent of casualties.

“83 were killed and 119 others were wounded--there were eight women and eight children among those killed. There were another 15 women and 16 children wounded during the violence, and another 35 people taken hostage by the Taliban during this period,” said Naeem Nazari, the deputy head of the AIHRC.

I and others who Really follow this and GWOT are anything but surprised. The Trump administration has done many many wonderful things..signing this surrender document treaty is not one of them.  Make no mistake this Will come back and bite us in the butt.
