In memory of and sympathy for
A 9-yr-old child
2 other civilians wounded
on Thursday night, Friday, September 4/5, 2008
in the Bakwa district of Farah Province. A US/NATO air strike killed 2 civilians (a woman and a child aged nine), wounding two more. The strike allegedly targeted the home of a local Taliban commander, Mullah Fazil. The US and Afghan propaganda outlets said that the air strike also killed some Taliban resistance fighters but the civilians killed were members of Fazilís family (evidence? rules of war as regards bombing when civilians are present?). Local medis said the seven dead were civilians.
Precisely killed in an early morning US/NATO air strike
