Afghanistan: Government releases video showing that airstrike contested by the media was carried out on a terrorist meeting

(Kabul)  The otherday the Afghan air force carried out an airstrike on a mosque in a taliban area hosting a meeting of elders. As per usual the Taliban spread the message that the strike hit a peaceful meeting of students  and that they had no men in the area. As per usual the media have no problem promoting the message the Taliban have given them. Why they are claiming that those killed were children.

Today the Afghan government released a surveillance video of the target area before the strike which kind of supports their version of the story. I wonder if the mainstream western media will change their tune.
