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.
