The brutality of American airstrikes continue for the month of September that has seen its airstrikes kill over 80 Syrian soldiers in Deir Ezzor, 22 Somali soldiers, 8 Afghan policemen and now at least 15 civilians in Afghanistan.
These atrocities by the United States have all occurred in just the month of September alone.
This latest atrocity, Washington thought they had targeted ISIS positions in the Achin district of Nangarhar province.
Government officials said the strike killed some militants, but the U.N. Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) reported the victims were civilians, including students, a teacher, and members of families considered to be “pro-government”.
“UNAMA reiterates the need for all parties to the conflict to adhere to their obligations under international humanitarian law,” the United Nations said in a statement late on Thursday.
“UNAMA calls on the government and international military forces to launch a prompt, independent, impartial, transparent, and effective investigation into this incident.”
The United States military said it would be investigating these allegations and that it tries to take precautions to avoid these atrocities.
“We take every possible measure to avoid civilian casualties in these operations, and will continue to work with Afghan authorities to determine if there is cause for additional investigation,” U.S. forces said in a statement.
