In the last year, Afghanistan witnessed over 60 deadly suicide attacks carried out by Taliban and Daesh across the country, with the majority of hits in Kabul, Nangarhar and Herat provinces.
Of the 63 attacks, Taliban has claimed responsibility for 48 of and Daesh 15 others. In 2017 the Taliban changed its war tactics and mostly used group attacks seizing Humvees for carrying out attacks against major military bases.
Civilians have paid a high price for these attacks as it was mostly ordinary people who were killed and wounded in the explosions.
Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) has meanwhile said in most of the suicide attacks mainly the civilians' have lost their lives and that re-emphasized targeting civilians is a war crime.
