Afghanistan: 119 People Killed in 2 Days, Source Says
[ToloNews] As the level of violence remains high in the country despite occasional efforts to jumpstart the stalled grinding of the peace processor, details provided by a security official who wished not to be named indicate that 119 people, including 102 security force members, were killed in festivities and security incidents in just two days--June 3 and 4.

Analysts say this shows the gravity of the intensifying conflict. The Defense Ministry reports festivities in at least 10 provinces daily on average.

The information by the source shows that 196 security force members were maimed onJune 3 and 4. The source says that Taliban

casualties are similar to those of Afghan forces in the same time period, but the Defense Ministry reported that 183 Taliban were killed in Afghan defensive operations in eight provinces on June 3, and 181 Taliban were killed in Afghan forces operations in six provinces on June 4.

According to the source, 54 people, including 17 police force members, 3 supportive local police forces, 20 army members, 5 NDS personnel and 8 non-combatants were killed on June 3.

The information indicates that 65 people, including 15 coppers, 23 army members, 5 NDS personnel, 18 members of public uprising forces and 9 non-combatants were killed on June 4.

The Taliban rejected both figures.

"There are festivities in 24 to 27 provinces every day. Security forces casualties have increased, but it is not as much as the Taliban," said Khan Agha Rezaee, the head of the internal security commission of the Wolesi Jirga, the lower house of Parliament.

"The war leadership is faced with problems and meanwhile there aren't enough forces for the clearance and retaking of areas," said Nasim Mudabir, an MP from Baghlan.

The festivities have intensified on multiple fronts as heavy fighting was reported in Faryab in the last 24 hours in which at least a dozen security force members were killed, a member of the provincial council said.

"The figures provided by Afghan forces on Taliban casualties and by the Taliban on Afghan forces casualties are not accurate," said Ilyas Wahdat, former Paktika
...which coincidentally borders South Wazoo...
governor.

The information by the source indicates that 17 non-combatants were killed on June 3 and 4 and 55 more were maimed.

"Last week the Taliban martyred 63 civilians in 27 provinces and maimed 126 others. Women and children are also among the victims," said Rahmatullah Andar, front man for the National Security Council.

"Equal forces are fighting against each other; therefore, it brings casualties," said Ghulam Wali Afghan, an MP from Helmand
...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan...
Casualties of security forces and Taliban are usually not stated in public with exact figures, and in most cases, they are not confirmed by independent sources.
