Thus, according to the newspaper, none of the perpetrators have been prosecuted. One of the officers was removed from command and recalled from Afghanistan.

Punishment of the others was more than light: six of them command conducted individual interviews, seven reprimands were issued and two were sent for refresher courses. The penalties followed at the end of the six-month Afghan investigation of the incident conducted by the Pentagon.

In an air RAID on 3 October 2015 in Kunduz killed at least 22 people, injuring dozens, a hospital of "Doctors without borders" was partially destroyed. The commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan John Campbell then explained what happened a mistake in the chain of orders and requested the Afghan military to strike at the object, captured by the Taliban.

The circumstances of the incident investigated at the same time representatives of the US army, the Afghan authorities and NATO. The organization "Doctors without borders" has called the incident a war crime and demanded an independent international investigation. President Barack Obama personally apologized by phone to the President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai for an airstrike.
