All of this, as usual, during the peace talks. An attack that follows that of the previous day, when because of the explosion of a motorcycle in the first aid of EMERGENCY have arrived and five others injured. Both attacks, has not been claimed, take place - as often happens - during the week of the reduction of violence, announced by the government in Kabul last Saturday, and the fruit of the ongoing negotiations between the United States and the taliban, which could lead to the start of real peace negotiations.
“The violence around you, in Afghanistan. This is a reality that you cannot tell otherwise. In 2019 there were 10.392 civilian victims. It is 5% less than in the previous year and the lowest level of civilian casualties recorded by UNAMA, the United Nations mission in Afghanistan, by 2013, "But has meaning, however, the death of more than 800 children," explains Marco Puntin, from the surgical Center of EMERGENCY - and the sixth year in a row in which the number of civilian casualties (dead and wounded) exceeds 10,000 people. The thing that we should emphasize, he adds, is that this week has actually been a reduction of violence with a reduction of attacks of about 70%, compared to the average of the previous weeks. In our surgical Centre in Kabul, we recorded very rarely, a drop in activity like this. In the month of February, we admitted 133 patients, a small number compared to our average. In the same month of 2019 were 215”.
The real "game" will be played between the afghan government and the taliban. however, it Is a truce that does not correspond to a real "cease-fire". In these days, representatives of the U.S. government and the taliban should meet in Doha (Qatar) to sign an agreement that will initiate the gradual withdrawal of u.s. troops from Afghanistan. Despite the afghan government does not participate in the negotiations between the United States and the taliban, will be a key part in the next phase: negotiations intra-afghani, who will face the real solution to the conflict that has lasted twenty years.
From 21 years in the "trench-Afghanistan". Afghanistan has been at war for so long, that the whole of the civil population has been affected in some way: this is what EMERGENCY sees and has seen in the 21 years in which we have been present in the Country. This moment could be crucial for the Country to embark on the peace process.
