Afghanistan- 50 people killed every day in Afghan violence: Mohib

(MENAFN - Afghanistan Times) AT News Reports

KABUL: The National Security Adviser, Hamdullah Mohib said
that at least 50 people lose their lives every day due to the ongoing war and
conflicts in Afghanistan.

Addressing a security meeting held in Moscow, Mohib said Tuesday
that there was a high concentration of threats in the region. He emphasized
that countering terrorism needs collective action. The National Security
Council quoted Mohib on Twitter as saying: 'At least 50 people pay the ultimate
sacrifice in the fight against terrorism on a daily basis, which makes
Afghanistan as the country at the frontlines fighting against terrorism.'

This comes as the United Nations already announced that over
3,000 civilians were killed in the last Afghan year (2018 – 2019) in nationwide
conflicts. Also, President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has announced that more than
45,000 security forces had been killed since he took the office in September

Mohib's remarks show a mass increases compared to the past
reports over Afghan death toll caused by conflicts. But there are serious concerns
over the security forces' death toll, as the Afghan government does not
officially publish it with the media.

Mohib flew on Monday to Russia to participate in a high
security meeting.
