Reports About Killing of Detainees in Panjshir Credible, Says UNAMA


The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) on Monday announced that reports of the alleged killing of detainees by the Taliban appear to be credible.

UNAMA said on Twitter that the perpetrators of these murders must be held accountable.

The UN office stressed that the Taliban’s investigation of the cold-blood killings must be transparent in order to be taken seriously and said that UNAMA continues to track Panjshir developments.

UNAMA confirmed the credibility of the killings in Panjshir a week after the Taliban published video clips of the cold-blood killing of the National Resistance Front Forces detained by the group in Panjshir.

In one of these videos, a picture of a Panjshiri father and son had also been published, who was first captured and then shot dead by the Taliban.

At the same time, Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson of the Taliban, had announced that the group had killed around 40 members and arrested over 100 fighters of the National Resistance Front.
