They call them ‘green on blue’ attacks…
An insider — Afghani — injured seven American soldiers before getting his sorry ass shot dead.
It’s the second such attack in a week.
Here is an official statement:
The shooting happened at Camp Shaheen in Mazar-e-Sharif, where the Afghan army’s 209 Corps is based.
Qahar Aram, a spokesman for the corps, told Stars and Stripes that the attacker was an Afghan special forces soldier who opened fire on foreign troops in the afternoon.
Aram said the attacker was fatally shot by foreign forces.
Saturday’s attack came just one week after three U.S. soldiers were killed in another insider attack in eastern Nangarhar province.
…Saturday’s shooting at Camp Shaheen is the second attack at the base since April, when at least 10 Taliban fighters drove past checkpoints and opened fire, killing around 150 Afghan soldiers.
We wish all those injured a speedy recovery.
