Kampfjet-Videos im Kundus-Prozess: Wer ist Zivilist und wer Kämpfer?

< 1 min

Die Tageszeitung (Berlin), 31 October 2013

In a report about the process in Bonn around an airstrike against two tanker lorries highjacked by Taleban in Kunduz in September 2009 ordered by a German commander that killed around 90 civilians, AAN’s Thomas Ruttig who has been invited as a “matter expert” on the Taleban is quoted as saying that the Taleban are highly unlikely to operate in such large numbers — the German military’s defence line is that the commander had been told (by a single source) that all people that surrounded lorries stranded in a rover bed were fighters.
