Australia to release report into possible Afghanistan war crimes
Australia is all set to release a long-awaited report on the allegations of misconduct and possible war crimes in Afghanistan.
The report – to be released on Thursday – sums up a four-year inquiry into the allegations against Australian special forces.
Al Jazeera’s Nicola Gage has been following the story from the Australian capital, Canberra.
Translated from Dutch daily Trouw, 23 December 2020:
A Dutch veteran tells how he shot at houses in the Afghan province of Uruzgan and possibly killed civilians. …
Hölzken says he was then ordered to shoot at two homes with a heavy machine gun … They saw people running from the second house, Hölzken was ordered to shoot at them, even though he reported seeing no weapons. According to the veteran, the Dutch were not shot at during the entire incident. “It was unjustifiable what we did that night,” he says.
BIDEN TO END AMERICA’S LONGEST WAR President Joe Biden set a deadline of Sept. 11 for pulling American troops from Afghanistan, two decades after the U.S. invaded to avenge the 2001 terrorist attacks. The U.S. mission, muddled by corruption, nation-building missteps and the deaths of nearly 2,400 American troops, ends much like other historical attempts to conquer the rugged country. [HuffPost]
