US punishes over dozen officers for Kunduz Hospital Attack in Afghanistan
Officials claimed that administrative and non-judicial actions were taken against the military personnel instead of seeking criminal charges.
US military officials launched an airstrike over a hospital in Afghanistan which killed at least 42 people in November.
Administrative punishment includes letters of reprimand, which can significantly hurt the ability of a member of the military personnel to get promoted.
US called it was a miss-incident due to technical error in aircraft’s mapping system.
Pentagon claimed that investigation is in process and a full inquiry report will be released in the coming days.
