Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN)Aerial bombardments blew apart a Doctors Without Borders hospital in the battleground Afghan city of Kunduz about the time of a U.S. airstrike early Saturday, killing at least 19 people, officials said.

The blasts left part of the hospital in flames and rubble, killing 12 staffers and seven patients -- including three children -- and injuring 37 other people, the charity said.

As the United States said it was investigating what struck the hospital during the night, the charity expressed shock and demanded answers, stressing that all combatants had been told long ago where the hospital was.

Air attacks kill 19 civilians at Afghanistan hospital

As a result of recent surges in Taliban activity in the city of Kunduz, Afghanistan, a hospital was bombed at the time US had done airstrikes in that area.

What really saddens me is that, the GPS coordinates of that particular hospital was disclosed to the US military way before the airstrikes were planned to be carried out.

While investigation is going on, staff of MSF have mentioned seeing US jets encircling the area and said to have targeted the building with precision strikes.


The Afghan Defense Ministry expressed sadness but in a statement said "a group of terrorists armed with light and heavy weapon (...) were using the hospital building as a position to target Afghan forces and civilians."

The Afghan Ministry of Defense deputy spokesman, Brigadier General Dawlat Waziri, told The Associated Press news agency that helicopter gunships had fired on the militants, causing damage to the buildings. Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said 10 to 15 "terrorists" had been hiding in the hospital at the time of the strike.

There are conflicting reports on the bombing, how ever the Afghan Defense Ministry more or less acknowledges US involvement.

You know the people at the hospital were alive until the US planes showed up and dropped bombs on them! Whatever happened to "boots on the ground".

This is just getting pathetic!.

Your thoughts.

US is still bombing Afghanistan, after 15 years?!
Our MIC is off the hook. Afghanistan was where they first rolled out the Globalist plan to destroy the ME.
It seems so long ago, and US has been warring somewhere, everywhere, in the region ever since.


Hopefully we can see this in light of the Syria situation. Therein it is being shown to the world that the US will endlessly bomb supposed enemies.
And truthfully, all the while they are simply destroying infrastructure to clear way for economic development there by the West.

There are untold innocent many, aside from this latest at the hospital, whom have died by the same hand throughout these many, many, years.

This sounds like a war crime to me... And no one will be punished for it.

Meanwhile the US media is focused on more domestic shootings.

If anything, the Taliban weren't even there to kill civilians, the were roaming the streets from live footage saying they are taking back their cities days earlier.

Yep, UN says it is a war crime if found to be deliberate, but than again who funds the majority of UN. The very Military Industrial Complex who are bombing civilians.

If UN do find out who gave orders to strike, are they really gonna prosecute the culprits or this just gets shoved under, by other media hype that's on going at the moment?

There were boots on the ground the Afghan military. Who do you think calls in the air strikes? What I find strange is people think you can fight in a city and not have civilian casualties. In urban combat civilians are often caught in the cross fire. What's better now taken say world war 2 is they used to bomb the entire city to hit 1 target. Now it's down to roughly 1 block. Without air support the Afghan military could never take the city so now here's the catch does the US stop providing air support and allow the Taliban to continue to fight. Or provide air support allowing them to clear the city. Which saves more lives?

The are several threads on this already.

This is a war crime.......fact.

There has bee an effort to black this out from the msm.

If this had been done by Russia we would be close to war.
