ZAGREB, August 1, 2019 – Two members of the Croatian contingent of NATO’s Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan who were wounded in a suicide attack in Kabul last week are recovering successfully, the Defence Ministry said on Thursday.
The more seriously wounded soldier has been transferred to Germany for rehabilitation at the US military hospital Landstuhl Regional Medical Center near the Rammstein Air Base. The Landstuhl Regional Medical Center is the largest US military hospital outside the United States, specialising in war surgery.
The other, slightly injured soldier has returned to Croatia and is in good condition.
The two servicemen were wounded in Kabul on July 24 when a suicide bomber rammed into a military convoy en route to the airport. Lance Corporal Josip Briški, aged 27, was killed in the attack, the first Croatian fatality since Croatia deployed its troops there in 2003. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.
