UNAMA Expresses Grave Concern About Serious Violation of Human Rights in Panjshir

Wednesday, 09/14/2022

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has expressed grave concerns about the serious violation of human rights in Panjshir province.

UNAMA said that it is monitoring the situation and called for the perpetrators of any crimes to be brought to justice.

The UNAMA’s concern about human rights violations comes a day after the Taliban published a video recording of the cold-blood killing of the National Resistance Front (NRF) captives in Panjshir province.

UNAMA stressed on Wednesday that the parties to the conflict have clear international obligations in addition to respecting the rights of prisoners.

According to published reports, the Taliban recently captured commander Mohammad Yar and seven other members of his forces and killed them in the Shaba area of Panjshir province.

The Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said that at least 40 NRF forces had been killed and more than 100 were captured in a clearance operation in Panjshir.

However, Sibghatullah Ahmadi, the spokesperson of NRF, wrote on Twitter that the behaviour of the Taliban with prisoners of war is a clear violation of the Third Geneva Convention.
