A United States airstrike on a clinic in Kundunz, Afghanistan recorded 30 civilian casualties on October 3.
The clinic was operated by the Medicines Sans Frontier (MSF) and the international organization immediately called for an investigation into what its President called a “war crime”.
A United States Commander in Afghanistan, General John Campbell has blamed the attack on ” human error”. The MSF clinic was wrongly thought to be a building held by the Taliban.
The US commander also blamed fatigue for the attack.
“They executed from air and did not take appropriate measures to verify the facility was a military target,” he said, and added that “fatigue” and “high operational tempo contributed to this tragedy”.
