  • WaPo- At least 140 dead after Taliban attack on a key Afghan army base, officials say
    The nerve center of Afghan and NATO combat activities in northern Afghanistan is a sprawling military base in Balkh province. There, thousands of Afghan National Army troops live and train, regional deployments and attacks are planned, and U.S.-supplied helicopters and fighter planes are launched to support Afghan troops battling the Taliban.
  • NPR- Taliban Was Able To Penetrate Afghanistan Military Base Before Attack
    Journalist Ahmed Rashid talks about Friday's attack on an Afghanistan military base. More than 100 people are reported dead making it the deadliest attack there since 2001.
  • KP- Explosion and coordinated attack on army corps in North of Afghanistan
    At least eight Afghan soldiers were killed and more than 10 others were wounded after a group of suicide bombers launched a coordinated attack on 209th Shaheen Corps of the Afghan army in northern Balkh province of Afghanistan. The Ministry of Defense (MoD) officials said the attack was launched on Friday afternoon and continued for several hours until the militants were shot dead earlier this evening.
  • TheGuardian- More than 50 Afghan soldiers killed by Taliban suicide attackers at army base
    More than 50 Afghan soldiers have been killed after Taliban suicide attackers disguised as army personnel targeted a national army base in northern Afghanistan. It’s the deadliest attack in the country since July 2016, when two Isis suicide bombers killed 80 Hazara protesters.
  • AP- Army compound attacked by gunmen, 8 dead
    Gunmen wearing army uniforms stormed a military compound in the Balkh province, killing at least eight soldiers and wounding 11 others, an Afghan government official said Friday. A spokesman for U.S. Central Command later told reporters in Washington that the attack near Mazar-i-Sharif left dozens of "friendly" Afghan casualties.

British military casualties - Editorial policy

In the service of our country.

Eulogies for all personnel killed on UK operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere are posted as soon as they have been released by the UK Ministry of Defence. Each eulogy we publish for men down in operations brings a lump to the throat. We are losing the best of the best. Politicians must ensure that, when the newspaper cuttings have faded, their sacrifice has had some meaning, has helped bring about a good result. Anything else would be a waste for which they will be eternally condemned.

There is invariably at least a 24 hour gap between the official release of news of an event and the naming of the dead. This is to allow families to be informed and proper eulogoies to be produced. Occasionally families request no euologies or comment. We abide by guidance we receive on such sensitive matters. We regret that information on those who sacrifice almost as much through grave injury is seldom released by the MoD for operational reasons, and so we are unable to pay tribute.
