9 Afghan forces killed in Taliban insider attack

AFP, Ghazni, Afghanistan

The Taliban have killed nine Afghan soldiers in an insider attack in central Afghanistan, the military said yesterday, underscoring the dangers Afghan forces face from within their own ranks.

The Afghan National Army troops “were martyred by Taliban terrorists in Qarabagh district of Ghazni province” on Friday night, the Afghan defence ministry said on Twitter. Defence ministry spokesman Fawad Aman later told AFP the troops had been killed by Taliban infiltrators.

Such attacks, sometimes referred to as “green on green,” are a constant threat in the war-torn country for international and Afghan forces alike.
