Three more of our soldiers were killed yesterday and one seriously injured when their patrol came under attack in southern Afghanistan. The soldiers were all from the Parachute Regiment and were all members of the Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) which was formed to add extra firepower and assault capability to the SAS and Special Boat Service (SBS).
This takes the fatality toll in Afghanistan to 195, of whom 163 died in action.
The loss of three members of the SFSG will be a hugh blow to the British Task Force in Helmand.
More unnecessary suffering for their families and friends. This unwinnable war is destablising the UK not protecting it. Future generations will pay because terrorists like the Taliban will never forget those involved and will seek revenge.
