Monday, 02 November 2020 _The past 50 days proved deadly for all in Afghanistan. Official figures state that over 3,000 individuals including civilians, government forces and Taliban militants have been killed or injured as a result of escalating clashes across the country.

Over 800 Afghan civilians killed, injured over past 50 days as 'peace' talks stallExperts believe the prospect for peace is limited unless Afghans prevent foreign players from what they call manipulating the decision making process and instead, take the real leading role in the peace talks.

This comes as efforts are underway by representatives of the Afghan government and the Taliban to remove the obstacles to the ongoing intra-Afghan talks and to reach an agreement on the main agenda of the negotiations.

The United Nations recently expressed concern over civilian deaths in the upsurge of violence in Afghanistan, condemning attacks that lead to loss of civilian lives.

Besides civilians, the rise of violence in Afghanistan has killed or wounded over 2,000 Taliban militants including some of their key commanders and dozens of Afghan military forces over the last 50 days. This comes as the Afghan military has stepped up its aerial and ground operations against terrorist groups mainly the Taliban.
