US General: NATO Special Forces Still Key Presence on Afghan Battlefield | VOA

NATO special operations forces, whom world leaders say have not been in a combat role since the end of 2014, are still out in the field with Afghan forces almost nightly, a U.S. general in Afghanistan said Thursday.

“On average, we [NATO] probably have somebody out every night or every other night at some place in the country,” U.S. Brig. General Charles Cleveland told reporters Thursday at the Pentagon. Cleveland, a NATO spokesman, was speaking remotely from Kabul.
