Medecins sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders, or MSF) is set to deliver its petition to the White House on Wednesday to conduct an independent investigation into the bombing of a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan by the United States, according to a statement published Monday.

NEW YORK (Sputnik) — On October 3, a US AC-130 gunship aircraft shot 30mm cannon shells for 30 minutes into the MSF hospital in Kunduz, killing at least 22 medical staff and patients. Another 24 people are still missing and are presumed dead.

"It’s time for our final push to collect signatures, because this Wednesday, we will be gathering in Washington, DC, to deliver our petition and to speak out about Kunduz, about the colleagues and patients we lost, and about the importance of international humanitarian law," MSF said.

US Should Hand Over Kunduz Bombing Recordings for Independent Analysis

Almost 550,000 people signed the MSF petition calling on US President Barack Obama to launch an independent investigation into the bombing.

According to the humanitarian organization, the international community cannot rely on investigations carried out by Washington, NATO and the Afghan government, as these parties are implicated in the incident.

In late November, US forces Commander in Afghanistan Gen. John Campbell told reporters the Kunduz bombing was an avoidable mistake caused by human error.
