One of the highest-ranking deaths of the war in Afghanistan since the September 11 attacks, occurred on August 5, when a gunman wearing an Afghan military uniform opened fire at a training facility in Kabul, a Pentagon spokesman reported.
An American general was killed and 14 coalition troops were wounded in an attack in a Kabul training center.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Roughly 15 coalition troops, including Americas were wounded in the attack at Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul, NATO's International Security Assistance Force reported.
The gunman was killed in the attack, and is purportedly a member of the Afghan military who has served for several years.
The German military reported that one person was killed and 14 were injured, including a German brigadier general.
A Taliban spokesman praised the gunman in a statement released the same day, but did not claim responsibility for the attack.
In the past, gunmen have dressed as Afghan security forces and attacked coalition forces who have worked to thwart such violence.
In 2012, numerous attacks following this formula killed dozens of coalition troops, and U.S. commanders halted joint U.S.-Afghan operations.
"Despite this sharp decline, these attacks may still have strategic effects on the campaign and could jeopardize the relationship between coalition and [Afghan National Security Forces] personnel," a coalition report reads.
Rear Admiral John Kirby has called these attacks "a pernicious threat," and are "difficult to always ascertain, to come to grips with . anywhere, particularly in a place like Afghanistan."
"It's impossible to eliminate that threat [of insider attacks] but you can work hard to mitigate it."
