During a Senate hearing on the U.S. airstrike that killed 22 people at a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, the top U.S. commander there said the U.S. never would have bombed a hospital on purpose.
"We would never intentionally target a protected medical facility," said General John F. Campbell, who commands the U.S. mission in Afghanistan.
That would be against international rules of war.
