US offers to pay families of Afghans killed in drone attack

17 October 2021


Al Jazeera :
The Pentagon had said earlier that the August 29 attack targeted an ISKP suicide bomber who posed an imminent threat to US-led troops at the airport as they completed the last stages of their withdrawal from Afghanistan.
However, reports had emerged almost immediately that the attack in a neighbourhood west of Kabul's Hamid Karzai International Airport had killed civilians, including children.
Video from the scene showed the wreckage of a car strewn around the courtyard of a building. The Pentagon later said the raid was a "tragic mistake".
The attack came three days after an ISKP suicide bomber killed 13 US troops and dozens of Afghan civilians who had crowded outside the airport gates, desperate to secure seats on evacuation flights, after US-trained Afghan forces melted away and the Taliban swept to power in the capital in mid-August.
Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has apologised for the botched attack. However, Ahmadi's 22-year-old nephew Farshad Haidari said that was not enough.
"They must come here and apologise to us face-to-face," he told the AFP news agency in a bombed-out, modest house in Kwaja Burga, a densely populated neighbourhood in Kabul.
