Democracy Now: Afghanistan Warns NATO To End Attacks On Homes Following Spike in Civilian Deaths

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has warned NATO forces to stop attacking Afghan homes after 12 children and two women were killed in a NATO air strike in Nawzad Province on Sunday. Karzai said the Afghan people can no longer accept the air strikes and house raids.

Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai: “We must clearly demonstrate our understanding that Afghanistan is an ally, not an occupied country. And our treatment with NATO is from the point of view of an ally, if it turns to the other, to the behavior of an occupation, that of course the Afghan people know how to deal with that.”
