Six Afghan Soldiers Sentenced for Fleeing Battlefield

KABUL – Six members of the Afghan army were sentenced Saturday to one year in prison for fleeing the battlefield, officials said.
The verdict came following an open trial at military court in the army’s 209 Shaheen Corps headquarter.
A statement from the corps identified the soldiers as Abdul Jamil, company commander, Syed Hussain, Saifur Rahman, Imam Dad, Najibullah and Amanullah.
The statement said that the verdict was not final as the convicts have the right to appeal.
Afghan soldiers have suffered because of lack of resources and training against the various militant groups active in the country; particularly, against Taliban and Daesh.
