Another Green-on-blue attack in Afghanistan

| June 17, 2017 | 7 Comments

Reuters reports that four more American soldiers were killed in an “insider attack” in Afghanistan;

“An Afghan soldier shot and killed four American troops inside the base,” said Abdul Qahar Araam, spokesman for the Afghan Army’s 209th Corps. “We are investigating.”

The U.S. military command in Kabul confirmed that it was “aware of an incident” at Camp Shaheen, which is the headquarters of the 209th Corps in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, but did not provide more details.

UPDATE: Fox reports that no Americans were killed in the attack, that there are some US wounded and one dead ANA soldier. The Reuters link has been updated, too.

At least one Afghan soldier was killed and several American soldiers were wounded in an incident at a base in northern Afghanistan on Saturday, a U.S. military official said.

    I hope those wounded recover quickly. Glad the attacker is dead.

    “We are investigating.”

    Well, that’s a relief. Obviously more training is needed.

    Much better to hear that update than the original release.

  4. Jonn Lilyea says:

    There were seven US casualties according to updates, but they’re all alive and the gunman is dead. One ANA soldier was killed.

    Just disarm ALL the afghani’s and shove them out the front gate….they can take their chances as sitting ducks! If any get shot, you can rearm them, the ones that don’t get shot……shoot ’em!
