    KABUL, Afghanistan – The International Security Assistance Force is sending an incident assessment team to look into allegations ISAF-caused civilian casualties during operations in Kunar province.

    ISAF is aware of the Kunar provincial governor’s comments that coalition forces killed more than 50 civilians during operations in the province over the past several days.

    “We take allegations of civilian casualties very seriously. We are conducting an immediate assessment of these allegations and will report our findings,” said U.S. Army Col. Patrick Hynes ISAF Joint Command Combined Joint Operations Center director.

    ISAF reporting and weapons system video shows 36 insurgents, who were carrying weapons, were killed. This operation took place in a very remote valley in Kunar province, over very rugged terrain in the late night/early morning hours.
