The massacre at Yaka China

The massacre at Yaka China


In memory of and sympathy for


 At least 5 civilians killed

7-11 other civilians wounded



on Saturday, October 20, 2007


in the Yakha Chena (Yaka China) hamlet of the Korengal Valley in the Pech District, Kunar Province as a result of Operation Rock Avalanche (October 19-25th). After a helicopter and U.S.-led occupation force (the 503rd Parachute Regiment of the 173rd Airborne) assaulted a village area in the middle of the night (when locals are sleeping), a firefight allegedly ensued with artillery fire and air strikes. The main target of Rock Avalanche was allegedly the hamlet of Yaka China. The assault team, Battle Company of the 173rd Airborne, was led by Captain Dan Kearney, supported by "Slasher" (a deadly aerial AC-130 gunship) firing bullets the size of Coke bottles", by "Gunmetal" (an Apache attack helicopter), and finally "Bone" (a B-1B bomber). This aerial flotilla rocketed and bombed ľ the B1-B dropped two 2,000 pound bombs "above the village" ľ homes in Yaka China. The results were predictable: precise killing and injuring of numerous civilians.

A Major Charles Anthony in Kabul, spokesperson for the NATO occupation, announced with the usual absence of supporting data that id 20 "enemy" fighters had been killed, but 11 civilians had also been wounded (and were being treated at the U.S. occupation base, Camp Wright). Anthony trotted out the usual propaganda about Taliban using civilians as human shields. Even the governor of Kunar, one Didar Shalizai, admitted "a civilian" had been killed, whereas village relatives said 5 civilians had died. The photos depict an injured infant, a wounded 27-yr-old mother of three at Camp Wright (photo by Les Neuhaus, Stars & Stripes), and a wounded boy.

The true story could not be concealed as in the usual case because news reporters (ABC News/Vanity Fair) had accompanied the U.S. occupation troops into the village of Yaka China. A U.S. air strike had hit a home and killed 5 civilians and injured at least seven others (including children) (photos from ABC News).
