According to the latest research, 40% of the total people killed in air strikes in the past 5 years are children. Data released Thursday by Action Against Armed Violence indicates that 1,598 children were killed or injured in airstrikes carried out between 2016 and 2020.

Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Ariyan said the number of injured in Saturday’s attack had also passed 100. Afghanistan Director Chris Savemandi of Save the Children’s International Institute said: “Unfortunately, these numbers do not surprise us.” Afghanistan has been very dangerous for children for several years. The US military is withdrawing from Afghanistan this year and, according to agency data, between 2017 and 2019, the International Alliance tripled its number of attacks to 757, from 247. The United Nations s was concerned about the attacks, but no one paid attention. Nyamandi said 5 children are killed or injured every day in Afghanistan for the past 14 years. Action on Armed Violence executive director Eoin Overton said the United States hit as many bombs in 2018-19 as it did not drop in 2011, when the U.S. campaign was at its peak. Afghanistan was the most dangerous year for children due to the bombings.

The Interior Ministry said the majority of those killed were girls aged 11 to 11. 15 years old. The number of injured has also crossed the hundred during the attack on Saturday.

Hazara targets Shia Muslims in attack
Arian said the first explosion was carried out by a vehicle loaded with explosives followed by two more explosions. He also said the number of casualties could increase further. Saturday’s attack in the capital, which was rocked by sustained bomb blasts, is the most ruthless attack to date. Criticism is mounting over fears of increased security and increased violence as US and NATO forces complete the process of withdrawing from Afghanistan. These attacks targeted the Hazra community in the western region of Dasht-e-Barchi, where most of the Shia Hazara Muslims were killed. This area is known for its attacks on minority Shia Muslims and these attacks are often claimed by Islamic State affiliates operating in the country. The radical Sunni Muslim group has declared war on Shia Muslims in Afghanistan.
