KABUL (Pajhwok): Participants of a gathering in Kabul on Sunday asked NATO countries, including the United States, to compensate civilian victims of their 20-year-long war in Afghanistan.

Dozens of people attended the meeting and speakers called on the caretaker government and Afghans living abroad to play their role in conveying their voice to the international community.

Salim Pagir, a participant of the meeting, said America and NATO should compensate Afghan civilians harmed in their war.

He said during the past 20 years, foreign forces used various weapons in Afghanistan, inflicting life and financial losses on many people.

Hamidullah Hotak, another participant, said the US and the international community should compensate Afghans who were affected by the war.

He said Afghans living in foreign countries should help raise the voice of Afghans on the world stage.

He urged the government to allow such gatherings in all zones in order the voice of Afghans could reach the world.

Mohibullah Sharifi, another speaker, said every country that was part of the NATO mission in Afghanistan should compensate the affected Afghans. He also requested the media to convey their voice to the world.

Abdul Jabbar Safi, a resident of Kunduz’s Chahadara district, told Pajhwok: “In 2018, foreign forces bombed our house, killing 14 people.”

He added he was not present in his house at the time of the attack and he was informed that his house had been attacked. He added his son was injured in the attack and his condition was still not good.

He said no one had so far assisted him and today he joined the meeting to make his voice known to the world.

Toriyali Hamat, on behalf of the Islamic Emirate, said that the Islamic Emirate would allow and support any meetings organized for good.
