The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan is releasing a report documenting human rights abuses in the northern city of Kunduz during the two weeks when the city was overrun by the Taliban.
The report, released on Saturday, documents 289 deaths and 559 civilian injuries that occurred in Kunduz city and the surrounding districts between Sept. 28 and Oct. 13.
“The vast majority of casualties documented so far resulted from ground fighting that could not be attributed solely to one party,” the report stated.
During the counter-offensive to retake Kunduz, 30 people were killed and 37 wounded on Oct. 3 in an accidental airstrike by the international military coalition on a hospital run by the medical charity Doctors Without Borders.
