At least 10 civilians, including 5 children, were killed by U.S. forces when they fired a so-called "precision-guided munition," which landed 300 yards away from its intended target on a compound filled with civilians. NATO forces urged civilians to stay in Marjah during Operation Moshtarak, the largest military operation so far in the Afghanistan war. Because U.S. and allied forces encouraged civilians to stay in their homes during the attack, these forces have a special responsibility to avoid endangering civilians--an obligation NATO forces clearly failed to meet on Feb. 14.
