Afghan Forces’ Battlefield Casualties Worry NATO

Afghan Forces’ Battlefield Casualties Worry NATO

The Taliban in recent days has staged repeated attacks on the capital of Helmand province, where the Afghan government is in full control of only two of the 14 districts.
“We do have concerns about the number of ANDSF casualties and it is something we work closely with our Afghan partners to address,” said U.S. Brigadier General Charles Cleveland, spokesman for Resolute Support, NATO’s mission in Afghanistan.
He told VOA that Afghan forces “did not break or collapse” despite suffering significant casualties in 2015 and instead were able to “regenerate capacity” to hold ground during this year’s offensive against the Taliban.
