The US Department of Defense has said that they will pay an unspecified amount of condolence money and will relocate the family of those who were killed in a mishandled drone attack of the US in Kabul.

The DOD said that they have pledged money to be paid for the family and has asked the department of state to arrange relocation to the United States for the family members who are interested to.

The US drone attacked a family in Kabul on August 29 in which 10 people have killed among them, seven children.

The US officials had first said that they have targeted ISIS-K affiliates who were an imminent threat to them as they were busy evacuating people from Hamid Karzai International Airport now Kabul International Airport.

The US DOD then called the attack a tragic mistake.

The drone attack was conducted on the last day of the US evacuation mission and days after ISIS-K affiliates carried out the attack at the gate of Kabul International Airport that killed over a hundred civilians and 13 US marines.
