NATO defiant on Afghan night raids

- December 19, 2011 - Updated 1524 PKT - From Web Edition

KABUL: NATO said Monday that US-led forces in Afghanistan will continue night raids, despite renewed objections from Afghan President Hamid Karzai after a pregnant woman was killed during an operation.


Afghan Special Forces will increasingly take the lead in such operations, spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) Brigadier General Carsten Jacobson said, without giving a precise timetable.


Night-time raids are one of the most contentious issues in Afghanistan.

This is a slap on KARZAI face. Karzai ordered NATO to stop raids and NATO's response is Go F your self. Which means Karzai is nothing but a puppet and NATO is all in all, won't take puppets orders.

This is clearly a mission to kill muslims.

How coward can you get when you attack and kill innocent civilians in the dead of the night.

Afghan people have to wake up against the occupation forces and kick them out. Brave Afghans need to demonstrate once again that NATO is no different from USSR
