BNA reporter reporting the issue reports, the UN in its recent report expressing concern over the high casualties among civilians in Afghanistan says that during the last nine months the current year 2640 civilians have been killed in Afghanistan and 5379  people wounded.
The report says, the armed oppositions fighting against state security forces are responsible for 64% of casualties among civilians while the state security blamed for 20% of the casualties.
Based on UN report, although the number of casualties in comparison of the nine months of the previous year 6% decreased, but civilian casualties as a result of Afghan and foreign air attacks have 50% increased.
The civilian casualty always been a controversial issue in war in Afghanistan, but the recent findings of UN have blamed Taliban and other terrorist groups for 64% of casualties among civilians.
However the people and military experts of the country believe that Taliban’s share in killing civilians is much higher than the   figure mentioned in UN report. They say Taliban carry out terrorist attacks cause heavy casualties among civilians.
Zanbaq Square incident is an example of savagery of terrorist groups where more than 200 people martyred.  Attack on Imam Zaman Mosque in Kabul, attack on vehicle carrying the staff of Mine Ministry and attack on Jawadia Mosque in Herat are the examples the crimes that Taliban and other terrorist groups committed which caused heavy casualties among civilians.
Doulat Waziri the spokesman of national defense ministry also believes that terrorists are bearing the major responsibility for casualties among civilians, because they deliberately, use the residential houses and the residents as a shield.
Political elites believe presenting report cannot settle any problem. The UN always sufficed reporting on number of casualties among civilians, it would be better the UN seek ways of punishing Taliban and other terrorist groups in order the terrorist desist from killing of civilians.
