The US Department of Defense will pay compensation to the relatives of 10 people who died as a result of an American drone strike in Kabul. About it informs Reuters citing a statement by Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.
The amount of compensation was not specified.
The ministry is also committed to helping surviving family members move to the United States.
Recall that in mid-September, families of Afghan residents who died as a result of an American drone strike asked for compensation and resettlement to a safe country. Many of the victims were the only breadwinners in their families and worked for US structures.
The mistaken attack by an American drone took place on August 29, two days before the complete withdrawal of the US military contingent from Afghanistan. The airstrike was in response to a terrorist attack carried out two days earlier at the Kabul airport. Then the explosions claimed the lives of 200 people, including 13 US military personnel.
