Afghanistan: Security forces mistakenly kill nine civilians in raid in eastern Nangarhar province:
“Nine civilians including a local police commander, relatives of the Senate Chairperson Fazal Hadi Muslimyar and several others were wounded,” Khoghyani added. A child is among those injured. However, the Taliban claimed that all those killed were relatives of Muslimyar.
Hayat said that there was gunfire from the houses the Afghan forces had raided, but once the operation was over, it was clear that civilians had been killed, AP reported.
