Khan condemned the incident on Twitter, saying, “Pakistani military aircraft bombed Afghan soil under Taliban control for the first time, killing more than 40 civilians. Pakistan, on the other hand, has been killing Afghans for decades through its proxy forces, the Taliban and Mujahideen.”

Khan also posted a photo of the victims’ bodies and called on the International Criminal Court and Amnesty International to investigate Pakistan’s war crimes in Afghanistan.
