On 3 October 2015, US airstrikes destroyed our trauma hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, killing 42 people.

Patients burned in their beds, medical staff were decapitated and lost limbs, and others were shot from the air while they fled the burning building.

The 92-bed hospital was the only facility treating major trauma injuries in all of northeastern Afghanistan, serving thousands of people. Since opening the hospital in 2011, more than 15,000 surgeries were conducted and more than 68,000 emergency patients were treated.

Following the attack, we demanded an independent investigation by the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission (IHFFC). In April 2016 , the US military released its own investigative report. The request for an independent investigation has so far gone unanswered.
