China Calls for Probe into US Military Crimes in Afghanistan

China Calls for Probe into US Military Crimes in Afghanistan

Alwaght- China’s Foreign Ministry urged on Wednesday investigations into into numerous allegations of crimes committed by the US military against Afghans during the 2-decade occupation of the Asian country.

Commenting on reports that US troops had fired on Afghan civilians following the suicide bombing at Kabul airport last Thursday, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said the incident that claimed nearly 200 lives was not be the first time the US military has been at the center of concerning events in Afghanistan. The spokesman then highlighted six events in which US troops had allegedly caused mass casualties or had harmed those in their care.

Among incidents noted by the spokesman was a US airstrike in 2002 which struck a wedding banquet in Uruzgan province, killing dozens and injuring many more. He also described a NATO attack in 2015 which, according to Wang, killed 15 police on an anti-narcotics mission, and a 2019 US drone attack that killed at least 30 Afghan farmers in Nangarhar Province.

Wang said that the number of civilian deaths caused by US strikes in Afghanistan far exceeds American estimates, adding that at least 47,245 Afghan civilians have been killed in the war launched by Washington two decades ago.

The spokesman insisted that all reported and alleged atrocities must be investigated, and the perpetrators brought to justice despite the fact that the US military has now withdrawn from Afghanistan. “This is about the international rule of law, international justice and the progress of human rights,” he added.
