Hekmatullah (10)- Lost his father, Mohammad Dawood
I was afraid and awake. I pretended to be asleep and hid under my blanket. First, he stepped on me. Then he tripped over my brother. He pulled my father off his bed, brought him out of the room. My mother followed. Then he shot my father. My fathers last words were, ‘Have Mercy’. When he left, he stepped on my fathers dead body. When he left we locked the door and brought my father into the room. We watched over him the whole night.
Rafiullah (15) Lost four family members, and six heavily injured.
He shot at us, one after another. My grandmother died immediatly. My sister and I were injured. The shot went through my right leg. Then hit a wall, came back and hit my other leg. In the middle of the night, when all were sleeping, you went and killed them. Why?! Did we hurt you?! You were in your base. We had nothing to do with each other… Why? Shooting people for no reason? This is not fair.
Haji Mohammed Wazir (38) Lost 11 family members
The Americans, the occupants of our country say: ‘We bring you reconstruction and progress’. They brought no development, just destruction. I was not home. At the break of dawn I received a call. They told me my whole family had been killed. They said the Americans did it. They were sleeping in different rooms. He killed them. Brought them into one room. And set fire to their dead bodies. When i arrived in the morning, the vilagers had already gathered. Then i saw the dead bodies. All burnt and covered with blood. Talking about this, it feels like a fresh wound. My mother is dead, my wife is dead, so are two of my sons and four of my daughters. My brother, his wife and their child was killed too. On the very same day, they took the solider and flew him to the USA. We could not prevent it. We did not have the power. They say he was insane… but would the government give an insane person such a responsible position in the army?
