New York, Aug 4 (EFE).– Taliban fighters have executed soldiers, police, and civilians with alleged ties to the Afghan government, Human Rights Watch said in a chilling report on Wednesday.

The United States Embassy in Kabul also tweeted about alleged rights violations by Taliban militants who use civilians as human shields.

The allegations by the US and the global rights watchdog come amid a growing Taliban onslaught that has gripped the war-torn country after the withdrawal of foreign forces that began on May 1 and will conclude by September.
