With about a week left in the holy month, casualties, including both deaths and injuries, have already reached 1,365.
This week’s count covers deaths and injuries at the hands of jihadists between the beginning of Ramadan on May 17 and June 10.
This year, the Taliban has proven to be the most prolific jihadist group in the world, carrying out more attacks that have killed and wounded more people than any other terrorist group during Ramadan.
In an unprecedented move, the Taliban announced on Saturday that it was planning to embrace the Afghan government’s U.S.-backed ceasefire offer, but only for three-days over the Eid al-Fitr holiday, expected to start this Friday, marking the end of Ramadan.
On Thursday, the U.S.-NATO coalition announced it would adhere to Ashraf Ghani’s unconditional Ramadan ceasefire with Taliban unveiled that day and expected to last until the end of the holy month.
However, the Taliban said in its statement Saturday that the truce excludes foreign forces and operations would continue against them, also adding that they would defend themselves against the Afghan troops if necessary.
The U.S.-NATO coalition has yet to comment on the Taliban’s Eid truce.
Since it announced its ceasefire proposal on Saturday, the Taliban has carried out attacks against the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF), which includes police and army units, killing about 38 of them.
Deaths and injuries at the hands of Islamic extremist groups tend to intensify during Ramadan and this year is no exception.
Islamic extremists believe God especially rewards in heaven those who engage in jihad and that it is exceptionally heroic to die a martyr during that period.
Breitbart News primarily gleans its count from the Religion of Peace website in coordination with news and government reports.
Given that news outlets and government agencies do not report many of the terrorist attacks in real time, the casualty total for this week is subject to change.
Officials may update some of the data as some of the injured victims succumb to their injuries, a move that will likely trigger a change in the count after Breitbart News publishes this report.
