Woman killed, 2 kids hurt in raid

25 January, 2013

KABUL: A woman was killed and two minors were injured when the Afghan and foreign combined force raided house of a local council chairman in Tagab district of Kapisa province in the wee hours of Thursday.

Following tip-offs that some armed opponents were hiding in the house of Tagab district local council chairman, Mullah Muhammad Naeem, the Afghan and foreign combined force raided his house in Anarjo village near the district headquarters, the Tagab governor Abdul Qudoos Safi told the Afghan Islamic Press (AIP).

Wife of Muhammad Naeem was gunned down when she resisted search of the house, he added.

The combined force did not find any armed opponents during search of the area, Safi maintained.

Meanwhile, an area resident told the AIP that the combined force shot dead the woman when she tried to get her husband released from the combined force. He said the combined force wanted to arrest Mullah Muhammad Naeem but set him free after killing his wife.

The troops arrested and took away a neighbour of Mullah Muhammad Naeem, he maintained.

Another area resident told the AIP that two children of Mullah Muhammad Naeem were also injured in the raid.

Such kind of attacks by combined forces have increased recently, causing casualties to Taliban and civilians.

The Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told the AIP that their fighters were not in the house, and that those who suffered casualties in the attack were civilians.

When contacted, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) press office in Kabul told the AIP: "ISAF is aware of the allegation of a civilian casualty resulting from an operation that was conducted by Afghan security forces with support fromISAF troops in Tagab district, Kapisa province today."

"ISAF takes all civilian casualties seriously and, along with Afghan officials, is currently conducting an assessment to determine the facts," it added.

End.
