‘It was a mistake’: US admits to killing ten civilians in Kabul


Most Read This Week

United States has said that it killed ten civilians in Kabul when drone strikes were launched in Kabul last month.

A top general admitted the United States had made a “mistake” when it launched a drone strike in Kabul, killing 10 civilians including children during the frenzied final days of the US pullout from Afghanistan, news agency AFP reported.

The strike, a macabre coda to the 20-year US war in Afghanistan, was meant to target a suspected “Daesh” operation that US intelligence had “reasonable certainty” aimed to attack the Kabul airport, the report quoted US Central Command commander General Kenneth McKenzie as saying.

“The strike was a tragic mistake,” McKenzie told reporters after an investigation, the report said.
