Between 2017 and 2020, the Pentagon launched 23 "proxy wars" in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific region under a program known as 127e, the report also said.
Under 127e, U.S. special operations forces are authorized to train proxy forces to carry out U.S. missions abroad.
Serious violations of immigrant rights were also denounced in the report, which also added the U.S. refusal to close the Guantánamo Bay detention camp: "An ugly chapter of relentless human rights violations, by the U.S. "
