[ToloNews] The provincial governor and a Farah MP both claim that an Arclight airstrike ...KABOOM!... killed five civilians who were businessmen traveling on Saturday from Farah city to Abu Nasar Farahi Port when their vehicle was targeted.
"The governor is in charge here ... the governor must answer about who killed them," said Abdul Ghafar Arman, an MP for Farah.
The Ministry of Defense has not commented on the allegations. Foreign forces, contacted on Sunday night, have also not commented yet.
Farah's governor Massoud Bakhtor said that the incident will be investigated.
"We have set up a commission to investigate the incident and will share its findings with the governor's office and we will take serious action," said Bakhtor.
Human rights organizations denounced the attacks and called for an end to the strikes.
"We call on all parties to the war to respect international humanitarian law and the Afghan constitution. In all cases, the universal declaration of human rights One man's rights are another man's existential threat. emphasizes that civilians must stay away from military objectives," said Zabiullah Farhang, front man for the AIHRC.
"Unfortunately, we do not see any proper action towards civilian victims of the Afghan conflict, and we do not see any accountability for those who caused civilian casualties," said Zaman Sultani, Amnesia Amnesty International's South Asia Researcher.
On the other hand, a delegation of US troops went to Kunduz province on Saturday to meet and apologize to the families of victims of the airstrike in Dasht-e-Archi. Nearly two weeks ago an airstrike allegedly caused the death of five Lions of Islam and five civilians, including two women and one child.
If y’all keep apologizing, the civilians will not learn to stay far away from legitimate targets, and the targets will continue recruiting — often forcibly — civilian shields.
"The foreign forces special operations commander had arrived on a trip with a delegation. They apologized to the family for the martyrdom of the five civilians in Dasht-e-Archi district and assured them that they would seriously investigate the airstrike," said Esmatullah Muradi, a front man for Kunduz governor.
The Independent Human Rights Commission has also expressed concern about civilian casualties in US and Afghan airstrikes, saying numbers have increased compared to the past.
Increased pace and aggression of actions leads to more death and destruction among the targets and those around them. Sensible people who want to win wars would consider this a good thing,

[AlAhram] Egypt’s armed forces said on Sunday that they had thwarted a terrorist attack on a security checkpoint in North Sinai governorate, killing ten Death Eaters participating in the attack.
According to a statement by the military front man, security forces at the checkpoint were able to resist and engage the terrorist elements, killing ten and destroying a four-wheel drive vehicle they were using.
The front man added that during the shootout, two officers and five other military personnel were killed or maimed.
"The armed forces and police affirm that they will continue their efforts to eliminate and uproot terrorism," the front man said.
Security forces in the region are currently undertaking sweeping operations at the site to apprehend terrorists, according to the statement.
A ministry statement said the bombing took place in the Bordj Baji Mokhtar region. It was not known who carried out the attack, the first suicide bombing in Algeria for several years.
The conflict in neighboring Libya and deteriorating security across another of Algeria's borders, in Mali, have both fed concerns of armed militant groups growing more active in the Sahara and Sahel regions of North Africa.
Algeria is already wrestling with a major political crisis after a year of mass protests that helped oust the veteran president, but which continue with demonstrators demanding the ruling elite be fully replaced.
It also faces economic problems, with declining energy sales contributing to a fall in state revenue and planned cuts in public spending this year.

interesting if true
Hezbollah has been mostly absent from the front lines in the battles in Idlib province for a long time. I was wondering if they were being held in reserve for another purpose. However, I thought Syria (and Russian airpower) could take all of Aleppo without using Hezbollah but I was wrong about that.
