Air raid carried out by NATO-led troops mistakenly, claimed the lives of six Afghan soldiers in Ghazni province south of Afghanistan early Wednesday, deputy to provincial police chief Nawroz Ali Mahmoudzada said. "In the wee hours of Wednesday a group of soldiers were trying to ambush Taliban insurgents in Andar district of Ghazni province but aircraft of international troops mistakenly dropped bomb, killing six soldiers," Mahmoudzada told Xinhua. Meantime, Defense Ministry spokesman Zahir Azimi at a joint press conference with NATO-led forces spokesman General Josef Blotz condemned the incident. "The gruesome incident occurred at 04:00 a.m. local time when the aircraft carried out raids, as a result five Afghan soldiers were martyred and two others sustained injuries. Defense Ministry strongly condemns it," Azimi told reporters. Spokesman for NATO-led forces General Blotz said that the case would be investigated. NATO-led forces in the past too had committed such mistakes which claimed the lives of Afghan military and civilians.
