ISAF probing soldiers over alleged misconduct
The probe was launched following an internal report of alleged misconduct by ISAF personnel during an engagement that killed four insurgents in southern Zabul province on April 28.
A statement from the NATO-led force said since it was an open investigation, further details would not be provided at this time.
“I have informed the Afghan government of the situation. ISAF will do a very thorough investigation, and if appropriate, we will take action against the personnel involved,” said ISAF commander Gen. Joseph F. Dunford.
“We take all allegations of misconduct by our personnel very seriously. ISAF will fully investigate this incident and keep the Afghan government informed,” he promised.
No timeline has been set for completion of the investigation.
