US-led offensives kill six Afghan civilians

Five people were killed during a US-led military assault in Nangarhar Province.

In Laghman Province, an elderly woman died during an operation by American forces and her offspring was wounded in the attack.

The US-led troops have killed large numbers of Afghan civilians and military personnel in so-called friendly fire incidents since 2001.

Hundreds of civilians have lost their lives in US-led airstrikes and ground operations in different parts of the war-ravaged country over the past months.

The loss of civilian lives at the hand of foreign forces has dramatically increased anti-American sentiments in Afghanistan.
