For the time being, this information has not being commented. The Northern Alliance’s officials suppose the strike has been delivered by mistake: the pilots have just mistaken the Northern Alliance’s troops for the ones of the Taliban. The bomb strike on the Northern Alliance’s positions was delivered this morning, during the aircraft attack of Kabul. Several bombs were dropped on Afghan capital. Three powerful explosions resounded. It is not clear yet, which targets the pilots have had. At the same time, F-16 planes dropped at least two powerful bombs on the Northern Alliance’s positions at a distance of 40 km from Kabul. Information agencies report Western journalists have been eye-witnesses of the incident. There is not information about victims among the Northern Alliance’s forces. According to some sources, there are any victims at all. It is also not clear enough, what objects have been bombed by the aviation at the Northern Alliance’s positions. In general, the planes seem to have just dropped the bombs without reaching Kabul. Some Western information sources deny the Northern Alliance has been attacked, while reporting the two bombs aimed at Kabul have fallen near to positions of the anti-Taliban coalition. If so, we could only be delighted with the accuracy of the pilots.
