According to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, the conflict in the country killed has resulted in the injury, even death, of thousands of civilians, including children.
“In addition to the lives lost, the dire security situation is preventing many Afghans from enjoying their economic, social and cultural rights, with thousands of children already handicapped for life because of attacks on schools and medical facilities,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet.
