US-led forces have killed at least six civilians and wounded several others in two separate incidents in Afghanistan’s troubled east.
Five people were killed during a US-led military assault in Nangarhar Province.
In Laghman Province, an elderly woman died during an operation by American forces and her offspring was wounded in the attack.
The US-led troops have killed large numbers of Afghan civilians and military personnel in so-called friendly fire incidents since 2001.
Hundreds of civilians have lost their lives in US-led airstrikes and ground operations in different parts of the war-ravaged country over the past months.
The loss of civilian lives at the hand of foreign forces has dramatically increased anti-American sentiments in Afghanistan.
