The US's Department of Defense reported that there were 12 civilians killed and 2 civilians injured during 2021 as a result of US military operations.
The DoD reported “as of February 15, 2022, it was assessed ... approximately (there were) 12 civilians killed and approximately 2 civilians injured.”
Meanwhile, some military analysts believe that the number of civilian casualties as a result of American military operations are more than reported.
"America after 20 years in Afghanistan is accused of killing thousands of Afghans, they killed ISIS, Taliban, civilians and the previous government forces," said Asadullah Nadim, military analyst.
"Perpetrators of war crimes--whether it is America or any other country, must be punished in a fair manner," said Tariq Farhadi, political analyst.
The Deputy Minister of Information and Culture at a screening of a Bagram prison documentary film said that American forces in the last two decades violated human rights in Afghanistan.
"America bombed every place-- on children, weddings and civilians," said Atequllah Azizi, Deputy Minister of Information and Culture.
In August 2021, a United States drone carried out an attack on a house in PD15 of Kabul, as a result of which ten civilians, including seven children, all of whom were members of the same family died, and then the Pentagon described the attack as a tragic mistake.
