WASHINGTON (AP) — Human error, violations of combat rules and untimely equipment failures led to the mistaken U.S. aerial attack on a charity-run hospital in Afghanistan last fall that killed 42 people, a senior American general said Friday. Investigators called the attack a "disproportional response to a threat that didn't exist."
Army General Joseph Votel claimed the October 2015 US air strike on a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, that killed 42 civilians, could not be considered a war crime because it was unintentional.
The Pentagon has disciplined 16 military personnel over the “accidental” airstrike on a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan that killed 42 people last October. General Joseph L. Votel on Friday delivered a summary of a report about the investigation and said the attack was the result of human error and process and equipment failure. Show More Summary
