Two civilians have been killed by US-led foreign troops in eastern Afghanistan, amid growing discontent over the rising number of civilian fatalities in the war-ravaged country.

The civilians lost their lives on Tuesday in Ghazni province, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The two Afghan civilians were killed when the US-led forces opened fire on them as they were on their way on a motorcycle.

The incident occurred nearly two months after the death of nine children in northeast of the Asian country during the US-led air strikes.

Thousands of Afghan people have so far been killed as a result of military operations by the foreign troops since the 2001 US-led invasion.

US-led forces in Afghanistan regularly launch attacks on alleged militant hideouts, but the strikes usually result in civilian casualties.

As casualties of Afghan civilians and foreign troops have risen in Afghanistan this year, public opinion in the United States and other countries has begun turning against the war.
