NATO in Afghanistan - General Petraeus's Final ISAF Interview

President Hamid Karzai described Thursday as unjustifiable the massacre to 18 Afghans as a result of an ISAF air raid against a village of the province of Logar. Karzai condemned the unacceptable and intolerable action in a presidential communiqué made public in Kabul. Locals showed the media the 18 corpses, including five women, seven children and six men.

A spokesman with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Commander James William, confirmed the operation, affirming that only six rebels died and three soldiers were injured.

According to the Afghan president, currently in Beijing, "NATO attacks, which cause human and material loss among civilians, can not be justified or accepted under any circumstance."

The president's denunciation is taking place in moments when U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta surprisingly arrived in Kabul as part of a tour he is carrying out for some Asian states.
