In another article about the killing of three medical staff of a NGO-run hospital in Kabul, AAN's Kate Clark is quoted with an explanation:

"They [foreign civilians] can be seen as the soft underbelly of the intervention, an easy way to hit Western governments rather than trying to fight well-armed NATO forces, and potentially a highly effective way of driving foreign aid and influence out of Afghanistan," Kate Clark, country director for the Afghanistan Analysts Network, a Kabul-based research organization, wrote recently.
