ISAF Announces Investigation

ISAF Public Affairs Office

KABUL, Afghanistan (May 8, 2013) –
The International Security Assistance Force has initiated an investigation following an internal report of alleged misconduct by ISAF personnel during an engagement that killed four confirmed insurgents April 28 in Zabul Province.

Because this is an open investigation, ISAF will not provide further detail at this time.

“I have informed the Afghan Government of the situation. ISAF will do a very thorough investigation, and if appropriate, we will take action against the personnel involved,” said Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, the ISAF commander. “We take all allegations of misconduct by our personnel very seriously. ISAF will fully investigate this incident and keep the Afghan Government informed.”

No timeline has been set for completion of the investigation.
