The NATO airstrikes in Afghanistan will now be limited and no attacks on houses be allowed, said Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Referring to the recent strike that mistakenly killed a group of children and women, he said it would be the last of such strikes on civilians.

From this moment, airstrikes on the houses of people are not allowed, he told reporters on Tuesday.

In a strongly-worded declaration, Karzai voiced his unhappiness against the strikes, which NATO says are necessary in its war against the Taliban.

However, NATO said it will never conduct such airstrikes without the approval and coordination of the Afghan government.
