US-led airstrike obliterates friendly Afghan unit in another 'tragic' mishap

US-led airstrike obliterates friendly Afghan unit in another 'tragic' mishap | 13 June 2019 | A joint Afghan-US contingent has used NATO air support to 'suppress' enemy combatants - which turned out to be a misidentified group of government security forces. This is the second such incident in less than a month. An intense battle erupted while a joint American-Afghan contingent was on patrol mission in Kunduz province on Wednesday. The clash was so fierce that it forced the unit to call in air support to "suppress the onslaught of machine gun fire," Army Colonel David Butler, a spokesman for US Forces Afghanistan told Task & Purpose. However, once the 'enemy' was suppressed, the US command realized that the machine gun rounds were fired by "another group of Afghan security forces," Butler said.
