KABUL: Former President Hamid Karzai strongly denounced US airstrikes

launched against civilians in the western Farah province, in which a number of

civilians including women and children were killed and wounded.

The US air forces targeted residential houses in the Shivan

area of Farah’s district of Bala Boluk this week. A number of women and

children were among the dead, according to reports.

Karzai expressed his deepest concerns over civilian

casualties, calling such strikes in contrast to the peace efforts.

He called on the Afghan and US governments to immediately

stop dual policies that are in contrast to the peace efforts.

The former president wished paradise for the martyred and

quick recovery for the injured.
