The United Nations has documented a nine percent reduction in civilian casualties in Afghanistan in 2017 but warned of increased harm to civilians this year as warring sides are expected to intensify hostilities.

The armed conflict last year caused a total of 10,453 civilian casualties, including 3,438 deaths, according to the annual report by the U.N Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, UNAMA, released Thursday.

“Each of these figures represents a hope crushed for a better future,” lamented UNAMA chief Tadamichi Yamamoto while addressing a news conference in Kabul.

"We are concerned that we will see greater harm this year unless necessary steps are taken by all parties to prevent civilian casualties," cautioned Tadamichi.

In 2016, the conflict-related civilian casualties stood at 11,434, including 3,510 fatalities.
