The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) will review the methods of force usage against the insurgents in Afghanistan, ISAF commander Gen. John Allen assured President Karzai by sending a letter.

I have commanded all the regiments to take the changed method and report me by December 5th, Allen has said in his letter, confessing that there were civilians casualties in recent operations launched by his under-command forces.

As I have frequently said that protecting the civilians lives is part of my duty, I have emphatically ordered the forces to prioritize civilians safety, the letter said.
