Hundreds of former Afghan forces have disappeared or were killed by Taliban - Human Rights Watch



More than 100 former Afghan security forces have been killed by the Taliban or have disappeared since the militants seized control, according to a new report by Human Rights Watch.


According to HRW, an amnesty promised by Taliban's leadership to former special forces didn't prevent local commanders from targeting the former soldiers and police.


HRW accused the leadership of "condoning" the "deliberate" killings.



Recently, a Taliban spokesman recently denied any revenge killings were taking place in Afghanistan.


Remember that the militant group seized control of Afghanistan in August as the US withdrew its last military troops after 20 years of war, deposing the government of Ashraf Ghani.


The Taliban assured former government staff that they would be safe under a general amnesty towards those who had worked for the police, army, or other branches of the state.Latest Post
