420 Afghan Local Army forces graduate from professional studies

Commander of 20th Pamir Division based in Kunduz Brigadier General Hayatullah Aqtash says these soldiers and officers have been trained in different military sections for four months. 

According to Mr. Aqtash the forces have been divided in four companies and from now on they will be designated for kinetic missions in northeast provinces. 

Aqtash adds that this newly formed force will be used to secure vital government establishments, connecting routes and insecure districts. 

It’s worth mentioning that these troops work within the frame of the Ministry of Defense and they are privileged with salaries, martyrs, wounded and disabled pensions of Afghan National Army.
