Ashraf Ghani sacks 2 Army Generals over security lapses

KABUL - President Ashraf Ghani has sacked seven security officials including two generals for negligence over the attack on Marshal Fahim military academy in Kabul last month, a spokesman for the president, Shahussain Murtazwi, confirms.

Meanwhile, ARG said on Twitter that the probe team’s “findings reveal that seven high ranking officers including two generals committed professional negligence.

All seven are sacked and referred for further investigations. The process of REWARD and PUNISHMENT to continue!”

On January 31, five insurgents attacked the academy killing 11 military personal.

The attack was the third major attack in Kabul in January – after insurgents first held the Intercontinental Hotel under siege for over 15 hours and also detonated an ambulance laden with explosives close to Chicken Street in the heart of the city. At least 103 people were killed in this incident.
