At least 70 Children Killed in 10 Airstrikes in Afghanistan: TBIJ

KABUL – 115 civilians died in just 10 airstrikes in the US war in Afghanistan in the last two years; more than 70 of them were children. That’s the finding of a new investigation by The Bureau of Investigative Journalism , or TBIJ, which offers a glimpse into the terrible reality of the conflict in Afghanistan.
The strikes that the investigation focused on — conducted by the US military and the US-backed Afghan air force — represent just a handful of the total number of bombings during the period.
TBIJ crowd-sourced information on particular strikes, then worked with an Al Jazeera film crew who traveled to Afghanistan to meet some of the survivors, confirming civilian casualties in some instances when the US government had not admitted them.
The 10 airstrikes analyzed in their report took place between 2018 and 2019. The fact that over 60 percent of those who died in the bombings were children reflects Afghanistan’s overwhelmingly young population and a culture in which large families tend to live together in big housing compounds.
There is no official explanation for four of the 10 strikes TBIJ investigated. As for the others, according to details provided by the US military or contained in United Nations reports, the US military invoked self-defense. But even in cases where fighting was occurring nearby, victims say the strikes that hit their homes and killed their families were unjustified.
Compounding their pain, they have never received any accountability or even an explanation for their loss.
