ISAF kills 2 farmers in Laghman

The forces killed two farmers, Mohammad Aziz and Abdul Qahir, sons of Sher Mohammad Sahibzada

By Obaidullah Baidar

International forces killed two civilians during an operation in the eastern province of Laghman, an official said on Wednesday.

Soldiers arrived by helicopter in Wat Jabarkhel village of Alingar district around 12 am and raided the house of a farmer in the village, Alingar District Chief Syed Mohammad Sharif, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The forces killed two farmers, Mohammad Aziz and Abdul Qahir, sons of Sher Mohammad Sahibzada, he said.

It is rumored that a brother of the victims had links with militants, but that man was not killed in the raid, he said.

“I don’t know why the NATO-led troops killed these people,” he said.

According to a resident of the area, Abdullah, the two deceased men were irrigating their fields when foreign troops killed them and injured a child.

But a statement from media office of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), said that acombined Afghan and coalition security force killed two armed insurgents during a security search targeting a Taliban leader in Alingar district, Laghman province on Tuesday.
