WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Pentagon’s report on the US airstrike on a Doctors Without Borders (MSF) hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan is undergoing a security review and will likely be released in the next two to four weeks, US Resolute Support Mission deputy chief of staff for communication Charles Cleveland said in a press briefing on Thursday.
"The report on the attack on the strike on the Doctors Without Borders hospital up in Kunduz… it is still undergoing a security review at this point," Cleveland stated. "We don't know exactly when it is going to be released, we think it's probably sometime in the next two to four weeks, but we are waiting for final word on that."
On October 3, 2015, a US AC-130 gunship aircraft shot 30mm cannon shells for 30 minutes into a Doctors Without Borders hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz, killing more than 40 medical staff and patients, including children.
Following the attack, Doctors Without Borders called the incident a war crime, while US forces Commander in Afghanistan Gen. John Campbell later said that the Kunduz bombing was an avoidable mistake caused by human error.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon is set to release its report detailing its version of the attack.
The Obama administration has apologized for the incident and vowed to compensate the families of those killed.
