Defence Rejects Taliban Propaganda
The ADF rejects the allegations made by the Taliban in the ABC report today. The Taliban is the enemy of the Afghani people and is opposed to the democratically elected government in Kabul.
In all operations the Australian Defence Force has established, and adheres to, Rules of Engagement to safe guard against civilian casualties and collateral damage and protect our troops.
There is an established process in Afghanistan that allows Afghan nationals to make representations if they believe they have been attacked or have suffered a loss of life, injury or damage to property due to a military engagement. The ADF will always investigate any allegation that is made through this established process. No representations have been made to coalition authorities.
