Civilian deaths in Afghanistan dropped 12% in 2012 - the first time that figure has fallen in six years, a U.N. report said Tuesday.
The report by the U.N. Assistance Mission to Afghanistan (UNAMA) credits the decline to:
- fewer suicide bombings
- a decline in aerial attacks
- less ground fighting between pro-government and militant forces
- care taken by those pro-government forces to minimize harm to civilians.FULL STORY
I did not know that there were civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghan 'campaigns'.
Tens of thousands killed in prosecuting this 'war on terror', women, children and such were all terrorists weren't they??
less killing and deaths in the world is always a plus
very impressive use that tactic and enhance it to improve.finally some difference for the better
