US Terror Drone Strike Kills 28 in Eastern Afghanistan

Thursday 16 July 2015
US Terror Drone Strike Kills 28 in Eastern Afghanistan
Alwaght-  At least 28 people have lost their lives following yet another US terror drone strike in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Nangarhar.
Reports say the drone attack struck the Haska Mina district of the province, situated over 150 kilometers east of the capital, Kabul, late on Tuesday, killing at least 28 people.
Provincial governor spokesman Ahmadzia Abdulzai claimed on Wednesday the assault targeted a group of Taliban militants and that those killed in the airstrike were members of the terrorist group.
Taliban militants, however, have not yet made any comments on the incident.
Over the past one month hundreds of people have lost their lives in attacks carried out by US drones in different parts of Afghanistan.
The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) regularly uses drones for airstrikes and spying missions in Afghanistan as well as Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region near the Afghan border, among other places.
Senior officials in Washington claim that the targets of the drone attacks are militants, but witnesses maintain that civilians have been the main victims of the strikes over the past few years.
The aerial strikes, initiated by former US President George W. Bush, have been escalated since President Barack Obama took office in 2009.
President Obama has defended the use of the controversial drone attacks as “self-defense”. International organizations and human rights groups, however, says the US drone strikes are “targeted killings” that flout international law.
The United Nations has identified the US as the world’s number one user of “targeted killings,” largely due to its drone attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.
