19th February : 1 French Mountain Rifle KIA in Afghanistan RC-E

#1
Yesterday night, a French Chasseurs Alpin from the 7 BCA (Mountain Rifle Bn) was KIA by RPG and SAF in the village of Landarkhel in RC-E. His VAB APC was hit in a night ambush during a resupply convoy between Tagab and Nijrab.

Two other French soldiers, one from the 7 BCA and one from the 132 BCAT (K9 unit) were WIA.

This could be an INS reaction to the capture of a senior INS leader in the area by FRA forces earlier in February.


RIP
