US Army investigates video showing troop 'firing weapon at civilian truck' in Afghanistan
13 January, 2018, 20:38
The US military issued a statement Wednesday saying it was investigating a video that appears to show someone being shot from what looks to be a military vehicle.
A leaked helmet camera video out of Afghanistan showing a United States soldier shooting an Afghan civilian driving a truck has been removed from social media sites, and led to a promise of an investigation by the Pentagon.
"The video in question is not official, not authorised and does not represent the professionalism of the service members of US Central Command".
Service members regularly shoot videos and photos, and YouTube is home to many videos recorded in combat.
Pentagon officials would not directly comment on the incident shown in the footage, but Head of Central Command Gen. Joseph Votel expressed dismay about the video.
Gen. Votel further added "I can assure you that this video does not represent the professionalism or humanity of the men and women of U.S. Central Command". According to Politico, the video contained footage allegedly captured by U.S. troops fighting Daesh's affiliate in Afghanistan. The video is set to music and offers no audial cues for the clip.
The controversial part lasts just a few seconds and shows an armored military vehicle, possibly an M-ATV equipped for special operations troops, passing a slow-moving civilian vehicle known in Afghanistan as a "jingle truck".
"We are conducting an investigation into this video, and will take appropriate actions as a result of this investigation", the Central Command told Politico, which said it could not independently confirm the authenticity of the video.
"As the armored vehicle comes alongside the truck, the individual lowers his military-style shotgun and appears to fire into the truck's driver-side window, causing the glass to shatter", the magazine reported.
Only the arm and gloved hands of the shooter are visible in the short clip.
The video, uploaded anonymously to YouTube under the title "Happy Few Ordnance Symphony" before it was quickly removed, shows what appears to be a USA military vehicle passing a small-cab dump truck, commonly referred to as a "jingle truck".
