The Diplomat, 17 February 2016

Reporting the 2015 UNAMA civilian casualty support for Afghanistan, Catherine Putz quotes from Kate Clark’s analysis of the report for AAN:

As Kate Clark for the Afghan Analysts Network points out, “The single biggest factor affecting the Afghan conflict in 2015 was the almost complete absence of international forces on the battlefield.” She writes that in 2015, “it was the Taleban driving the conflict, with the ANSF largely trying to defend territory.”
