Karzai strongly condemned a US drone attack that killed a child and wounded two women in southern Afghanistan, said Afghan President Hamid Karzai's spokesman Aimal Faizi on Thursday.

“It shows that U.S. forces have no respect for the decisions of the Loya Jirga, council of elders, and life of civilians in Afghanistan,” said Faizi.

“They give no importance to the life of civilians. They are killing civilians like flies,” Faizi said.

Referring to the drone attacks, Faizi also said, “That should have been a red line for them... Even if he was an insurgent they shouldn’t have fired on the house."

The drone strikes come amidst Karzai’s refusal to sign a bilateral security agreement, which would allow thousands of US soldiers to stay in Afghanistan after 2014.

“If such operations continue, there will be no agreement,” Faizi also said.
