Islamic Emirate: 66 civilians killed and wounded over past 24 hours by airstrikes

March 4th 2017

Tens of our countrymen, mostly women and kids, were martyred and injured yesterday in four provinces by the airstrikes of occupying forces and indiscriminate attacks of their hirelings.

The first airstrike targeted Mal Khelo village near Algi bazaar of Arghandab district in Zabul province resulting in 2 women and 9 adults martyred as well as 2 minors injured. The second criminal airstrike took place on Kanjghatu Mountain in Arabano area of Chak district, Wardak province, targeting and martyring 3 young hunters who hunted in the area regularly.

The third airstrike carried out by a B52 type bomber hit Qumgozar area of Darqad district in Tarkhar province, martyring 5 innocent civilians including two children, wounding 7 others and destroying homes.

Lastly, airstrikes hit civilian vehicles and homes in Zerh Akhundzada shrine, Tapa Sa’adat, Todnak, Spanzi and Ghat village near the district bazaar of Farah Rod district, Farah province, resulting in 15 civilians including women and children martyred and 23 others wounded.

On top of carrying out such barbarity in a single day, the Ministry of Defense of the Kabul regime published a statement labeling all these martyred civilians as Taliban and proudly claiming that they had killed tens of people.

The Islamic Emirate – besides condemning these barbaric attacks by the Americans and their trained hirelings – considers this a great crime against ordinary Afghans deliberately targeting civilians and their homes. It also calls on the media, human right organizations and organs concerned with civilian casualties to fulfill their duties by publishing, condemning and recording these crimes, so it can be ascertained that these humanitarian organs really do care about the lives of human beings.
