Australian troops apologise for involvement in killing civilians in Afghanistan November 19 at 3:37 p.m.
The Australian military has announced that soldiers sent to Afghanistan were involved in the killings of civilians, prisoners of war and a total of 39 people, and the commander of the army apologized to the Afghan people.
The Australian military conducted an investigation between 2005 and 2016 on suspicion that soldiers sent to Afghanistan were involved in the killing of civilians and held a press conference on the 19th to release the results.
As a result, a total of 25 active-duty and former soldiers were involved in the killing of civilians, prisoners of war, and 39 people, some of them forced their subordinates to shoot prisoners of war.
“These actions are a terrible betrayal of the trust of the Afghan people who have asked us for help,” said Campbell, the head of the Australian military uniform group, and apologized and stressed that he would do his best to re-educate the military.
In Australia, several media outlets have reported atrocities by soldiers in Afghanistan and called for the truth, and Prime Minister Morrison last week announced his policy of setting up a special agents office to investigate independent of the military.
