On Friday, the inspector-general of the Australian Defence Force released a statement saying it was conducting an inquiry “into rumours of possible breaches of the Laws of Armed Conflict” by Australian troops in Afghanistan between 2005 and 2016.
“The inquiry would like anyone who has information regarding possible breaches of the Laws of Armed Conflict by Australian forces in Afghanistan, or rumours of them, to contact the inquiry,” the statement read.
Australia is not a member of Nato but is a staunch US ally and has had troops in Afghanistan since 2002.
