A Pentagon review concluded that a U.S. drone strike that killed ten civilians in the last days of the withdrawal from Afghanistan was not caused by misconduct or negligence, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

The review by Air Force Lt. Gen. Sami Said concluded that the strike occurred in spite of protocols meant to prevent civilian casualties, a senior defense official told the AP. Said found that the strike came while U.S. troops received multiple reports of threats, days after an ISIS suicide bomber killed 13 American service members and almost 200 Afghans at the Kabul airport.

Said did not recommend disciplinary action against troops involved in the strike.

The strike killed an Afghan who worked for a California-based aid company and members of his family, including children. Pentagon officials initially announced that the strike had eliminated a potential car bomb operated by ISIS militants.
