Washington: It’s admission time for USA. Yes, the Joe Biden administration has confessed its drone assault in Kabul erroneously killed 10 innocent people and perhaps no ISIS-K terrorists, reports BBC.
“The strike was a tragic mistake,” said Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of US Central Command, at a Pentagon news conference.
“I am now convinced that as many as 10 civilians, including up to seven children, were tragically killed in that strike. Moreover, we now assess that it is unlikely that the vehicle and those who died were associated with ISIS-K, or a direct threat to US forces,” he added.
The drone attack was carried in response to the mayhem caused by suicide bombers outside the Kabul airport that killed close to 200 people and several US servicemen.
