NATO forces shoot children, don't they?

From a reader: 
""A NATO airstrike in eastern Afghanistan late Tuesday killed 10 civilians, including children, an Afghan government official said."

ISAF-NATO: "The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child's concerns about reports of the death of hundreds of children as a result of attacks and air strikes by the US military in Afghanistan are categorically unfounded. Equally unsubstantiated is their assertion that US forces use indiscriminate force during their operations. Finally, the committee's assertion that US troops do not exercise precautionary measures is entirely false."
