Insurgency, war leave 92 dead in Afghanistan in 24 hours

Afghanistan occupation by United States military coming up on 16 years

Ninety-two people have been killed in insurgency and war in Afghanistan since Friday morning, an independent local war monitoring group said on Saturday.

“Within the past 24 hours, our team has documented 92 deaths, including two civilians, 27 Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) members, and 63 Taliban militants,” Reduction in Violence (RiV) confirmed on its twitter account.

Another 51 Taliban militants and seven ANDSF members were also wounded during the cited period. Taliban militants, who ruled the country before being ousted in late 2001, renewed armed insurgency killing government troops as well as civilians.

The deaths and injuries took place following 13 security incidents in 11 provinces of the country’s 34 provinces, according to the RiV figures.
