The Taliban recently launched their annual spring offensive, in an apparent rejection of a peace overture by the Afghan government. "Global humanitarian law prohibits targeting civilians at any time, under any circumstance", it said in a statement.

Afghan security forces have struggled to combat the Taliban and ISIS since the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation formally concluded their combat role in the country in 2014, shifting to a support and counterterrorism mission.
