Scenes From Kunduz Hospital in Afghanistan

7 October 2015

This is footage taken at the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) trauma hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, in 2011, 2014 and 2015. The hospital was the only facility of its kind in the northeastern region of the country. It provided cost-free, high level life- and limb-saving trauma care. In 2014, more than 22,000 patients received care at the hospital and more than 5,900 surgeries were performed. MSF treats all people according to their medical needs and does not make any distinctions based on a patient’s ethnicity, religious beliefs or political affiliation.

At the time of the aerial attack on October 3, there were 105 patients and their caretakers in the hospital, alongside more than 80 international and Afghan MSF staff. MSF expresses its sincere condolences to the families and friends of its staff members and patients who have tragically lost their lives in this attack.

MSF calls for State activation of the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission to investigate Afghanistan bombing. Read more here.

MSF/Doctors Without Borders: more deaths in hospital in Kunduz than thought

Today, 06:17

The death toll from the US American bombing of an MSF hospital in Afghanistan is greater than previously thought. The official death toll stood at thirty, but the organization said in a statement that at least 42 people were killed.

Among the dead are 14 members of MSF, 24 patients and four relatives of patients. The bombing was in October. The exact number of victims is only known now because many files were destroyed in the hospital.

Conversations with employees of MSF and survivors show that there were more people in the hospital than was assumed at first. Recently, more human remains were found in the destroyed hospital. Also, a number of injured people brought to other hospitals have died from their injuries.

… The organization previously called for an independent examination.

The New York Times Thursday published a lengthy investigative report based on a probe by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service into the torture and murder of detainees by Navy SEALs in Kalach, Afghanistan in May of 2012. While the official report, obtained by the Times through the Freedom of Information Act, details horrendous accounts of torture, resulting in the death of a detainee, charges against all four SEALs were dropped: here.

How Americans are propagandized about Afghanistan. The Pentagon is again forced to admit that its original claims about an attack were false: here.

THE resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan, where they recently mounted a major military operation in Helmand province in the south and where throughout the rest of the country they are increasingly active, is emphatic evidence that Nato’s prolonged military mission there has been a dismal failure: here.
