Military base in Kandahar attacked

During the night of November 18 the Kandahar Military Base where soldiers of the Lithuanian Special Operations Forces are serving underwent an attack. Small damage was done to the infrastructure but no one was injured.


"Even though Special Operations Forces soldiers are training the Afghan security forces, their lives are still in constant risk. Our soldiers are prepared well for such situations but this time our allies' active base protection means worked and effect of the attacks was minimised. I wish on the occasion of the oncoming centenary of the Lithuanian Armed Forces for our soldiers on multinational deployments to be able to carry out their duty safely," Chief of the Defence Staff Major General Vitalijus Vaikšnoras.
