Kabul-based news agency Pajhwok – that has started to regularly report its own war casualty figures from Afghanistan – has published the October 2016 figures: “As many as 3,285 people have been killed and wounded in 193 attacks across Afghanistan last month, showing a 35 percent increase in assaults and 83 percent hike in causalities, compared to September. (…) Five of every eight casualties resulted from face-to-face attacks, two from airstrikes and the rest from other forms of violence.” It is not fully clear, though, whether the casualty figures include all Afghans, ANDSF, civilians  and insurgents.
