In memory of
at least one civilian woman
killed on Wednesday evening, November 8, 2006
in a U.S/NATO close air support bombing raid in the Zhari district, west of Kandahar city. Canadian occupation forces allegedly identified a “Taliban position” and called-in air strikes. Residents said at least one woman was killed and that the war planes had dropped cluster bombs. The Taliban admitted that two resistance fighters were killed in the air attack, whereas NATO employing a “Vietnam-style body count” measure said 22 Taliban had been killed. The Zhari area was declared (with much fanfare and flurries of press releases) to have been completely cleared of Taliban a month ago by the NATO occupation forces.
