Seven US Soldiers Wounded As Result Of Insider Attack At Military Base In Northern Afghanistan

Seven US soldiers have been wounded in an insider attack at the Camp Shaheen in northern Afghanistan, according to the US military.

The Camp Shaheen is the headquarters of the Afghan army’s 209th Corps in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif.

“A spokesman for the U.S. military command in Kabul said earlier comments by an Afghan official that Americans had been killed were incorrect.

But he confirmed that seven soldiers had been evacuated after being wounded in the incident at Camp Shaheen, the headquarters of the Afghan army’s 209th Corps in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.

At least one Afghan soldier was killed and another wounded, the U.S. official said. He could not immediately say if the suspected shooter was among the dead or wounded.

Abdul Qahar Araam, spokesman for the Afghan army’s 209th Corps, announced earlier that an Afghan soldier had shot and killed four U.S. soldiers inside the base.

In a statement, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said an Afghan commando loyal to the militant group had opened fire on foreign “invaders”, killing four and wounding four others,” Reuters reported on the issue.

    It will be the first of many. We’ve seen this movie before. So much senseless death; so much needless destruction.

    The billions already spent by the American government in Afghanistan could have paved the roads , built schools , hospitals , water wells , irrigation systems etc. , they could have turned a third world country into a beautiful place .
    Instead of the positive approach , they will always remain , “infidel invaders” .

    • kraaiiii

        Wrong group you are talking Al Qaeda they are the US proxy force in the middle east and are spread throughout Asian . This more about the drug trade being open from Afghanistan through Northern Iran ,Iraq , Syria and on through Kosovo . The Heroin , Dodha in the Kurdish areas Meth , Kosovo is the distributor .The CIA’s silk road which China wants trade through there and everyone else but the CIA with it brings those areas under border guards control .

      Come on man. Disgusting remark. Young men sent to die for a senseless war while the politician sends his children to study in prestigious schools. This shit has been going on forever.

        You would be absolutely right if those young men were conscripted. The thing is, they voluntarily joined military to “meet interesting and stimulating people of an ancient culture… and kill them”.

        Queen Victoria was the biggest drug dealer in the World as the Opium via the British East
        India company filled the bank with profits.
        US are in A Stan for the Opium, …yet they do the old Masonic game of keep the occupied
        Nation weak and decentralized.
        Occupy A Stan so that Russia and China cannot get Lithium and rare Earth metals.
        A Stan also a leverage against future Silk Roads. …launch terror on that.

        The US is Colonial England 2.0
        British put Boars into camps and let them rot.
        US has largest prison system in the world.

        The US hides behind a Kabuki theatre screen of Democracy,
        When infact….they are Murder Inc.

      You’re pathetic

        youre blind

  • Lynn Ulrich

    Why are WE ( USA) there ?? Opium ?

    • Bob

      Excellent question. The CIA has long history using illicit drug market to finance illicit black ops. Back in the day it when US was in Vietnam, was all about South East Asia’s golden triangle – and heroin production from nearby Thailand, Laos amd Burma. Today, the CIA are running black ops and financing mass weapons and munition distribution into Syria – and they are in nearby Afghanistan – production centre for opium. The CIA has capacity to build airstrips, run light aircraft and circumvent any border or customs controls – they are literally a law unto themselves. running illicit narcotics is the least of their challenges.

      To do as ordered. The USA is a colony of Israel. Colonies don’t ask. They just obey orders. The people who are injured or die are tools.

      • John

        Right on, my friend, but– it is not the USA anymore– it is the USI– the United States of Israehell

      because your “elites” are pedophiles, mentally ill terrorists (Rockefellers)

  • Mik Moore

    US destroyed Afghanistan to start the Wolfowitz Doctrine. Period. It was not about 9/11, 7 countries in 5 years. Iraq, Libya, Yeman, Egypt, Syria and the crown jewel Iran. We were never the good guys.
