At least two people lost their life in eastern Afghanistan today as a result of US state terrorism in the form of drone attacks.

According to reports, the airstrike was carried out in Laghman Province. This is the fifth deadly drone attack in the country over the past week.

The US conducts state terrorism through drone strikes in several Muslim countries, such as Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Somalia.

Washington claims the targets of the drone attacks are militants, but local officials and witnesses maintain that civilians are the main victims of such attacks.

The Afghan people and the country’s officials have protested about the civilian casualties on numerous occasions, but the US drone attacks continue unabated.

The United Nations and several human rights organizations have identified the US as the world’s number-one user of “targeted killings,” largely due to its drone attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
