US Strike Targeting Mullah Nangyalay, Taliban Commander Causes Civilian Casualty by Macsjebs(m): 7:40pm On Jan 10, 2020
Mullah Nangyalay was killed but local officials say the attack also hit dozens of innocent bystanders.

More than 60 civilians were killed or wounded in a US drone attack targeting a top Taliban splinter-group commander in the western Afghanistan province of Herat, local officials said.

The Taliban commander, named as Mullah Nangyalay, was killed in Shindand district close to the border with Iran, Herat provincial governor's spokesman Jailani Farhad said on Thursday.

"According to the people, over 60 civilians were killed and wounded in the operation," Toryalai Tahiri, deputy head of Herat provincial council, told Afghan local media TOLO News.

Quoting Wakil Ahmad Karkhi, a member of the Herat provincial council, TOLO News reported "civilians have been killed and wounded alongside Mullah Nangyalai's fighters" in an American attack on Wednesday.

The Afghan government said it launched an investigation into reports of civilian casualties.

Nangyalay split from the main branch of the Taliban after the 2013 death of founder Mullah Omar and joined a smaller breakaway faction led by a commander known as Mullah Rasool.

A senior provincial police source said Wednesday's air raid had been carried out by a US drone.

Resolute Support, NATO's mission in Afghanistan, told AFP news agency it launched "a defensive air strike in support of Afghan forces", with a spokesman confirming US participation in the operation.

The main Taliban faction has been negotiating with Washington for more than a year over the withdrawal of US troops in exchange for security guarantees from the armed group that could pave the way to intra-Afghan peace talks.

Good development....but very unfortunate that innocent lives have to go so that there would be peace.

Kill them all. Anyone who doesn't want this world to know peace all in the name of religion should be taken out. Trump is the very man fit for this job.

God bless America.

heartbreaking!
Who made us of a the official police of the world. I think they are starting to overstep boundaries.
60 innocent people gone like that at the expense of what?
Trump and his disciples will surely pay the price for their crime. There`s too much bloodshed!

Most of you don`t see anything wrong in the gruelsome killing of 60 arabs but will rant and curse if a single one of your loved ones was `mistakenly killed` by a police trying to arrest a yahoo boy. What is the difference there? Or the life of an arab is of lesser value because they`re muslims? Religious hate has blinded the lots of you.
The only difference between boko haram and he lots of you mentioning me is that y`all lack the balls to pick up arms and kill the ones you hate.
When it comes to world politcs and war, you lots are like john snow - you know nothing!

I just watched aljazeera and CNN, there's no breaking news of such there. It wasn't even in their headline at 10pm news Then I read the article and I discovered it's an old news. It's an event that happened last year. Unfortunately most nairalanders don't read














I'll continue to say this, the USA is the biggest terrorists nation of the 21st century. They murdered innocent kids over the years in this afghan war and now look at this .
They assassinated an innocent man on foreign soil with the excuse that he was planning an imminent attack against American citizens. Same man that fought tooth and nail to give Iranians and most middle eastern nations peace. trump claimed he was targeting a us embassy, today he claimed he was targeting 4 before his death. He doesn't even know what he's saying.

Few even know this same USA was responsible for the Ukrainian air crash yesterday. They did it to give the world a reason why we should all turn our backs on Iran.

The USA over the years have carried out numerous attrocities through the CIA, the Pentagon have taken innocent lives, assassinated people yet, bullied everyone yet they want to be respected.

This is a country that have been responsible for the creation of several militia groups like Al Qaeda, Al shabab , isis, they will create more.

They're not "innocent lives" and there's nothing unfortunate about their being killed. They bear bad names and share neighbourhood with evil men. They really had it coming!
