Kabul (BNA)  National casualties is a complicated and permanent problem in Afghanistan and it can be solved only when the involved parties for protecting the lives of the citizens of the country be committed and cease fire  can be the first step for curbing this heinous phenomenon.
BNA social affairs commenting on the issue writes the authorities of Afghan Human Rights Independent Commission have express concern over the casualties among military and civilian people. The executive head of the commission has said to the media, from the beginning of the current Afghan year until now 596 civilians have been killed and 1892 civilians injured. About 75$ of them were children.
He says that Taliban are responsible for the casualties and injuries. 
If we precisely look at the incidents occurred during the last 18 years, casualties among civilians always been a questionable issue, but so far not settle as required. The problem is this that armed terrorist groups use settled areas as a human shield. Also in all terrorist incidents in Afghanistan the level of slaughtered civilians is very high and concern able.     
There is no doubt that the state forces also have role in casualties among civilians, but we deeply consider the issue, it is terrorists groups who have provided the ground for civilians casualties. They use schools, public places and houses as human shield.
Fighting also has its principles that should be observed. The state forces after every incident among civilians, have precisely reviewed their action but terrorist groups have never changed their actions in that regard. The kill the people and blame the security forces for the killing.
The state forces are carrying military operation in close coordination among three forces and do their best to prevent the casualties among civilians and destruction of their properties.
It is required for all involved groups not think the cities as forest not attack everywhere and not commit suicide in places where civilians are living.
To prevent casualties and destructions among civilians it would be better to prepare a guideline to prevent casualties and destructions among civilians. If Taliban are really honest in their claims, and not targeting the civilians, should say yes to the proposal, this is preparing a guideline. This would be the first step toward ending violence and preventing human casualties in the country.
