Family members said 10 people, including seven children, were killed by a U.S. drone strike in Kabul on Sunday. “At first I thought it was the Taliban,” one survivor said. “But the Americans themselves did it.”
The youngest killed was a 2-year-old girl, according to a brother of the one of those killed. They were “an ordinary family,” he said. “We are not ISIS or Daesh and this was a family home — where my brothers lived with their families.”
Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said the U.S. military is ‘assessing’ reports of civilian casualties following a U.S. drone strike that killed a suicide car bomber.
What people are saying?
President Biden I said we would go after the group responsible for the attack on our troops and innocent civilians in Kabul, and we have. My full statement on the strike that U.S. forces took last night against the terrorist group ISIS-K in Afghanistan.
Samuelschmamuel There is no way they would airstrike within a city inside the US they care too much about other people’s lives there, yet in a foreign country, they just don’t care.
