An Afghan sniper, known as Noor, who trained alongside UK special operations was executed in front of his family on Monday by members of the Taliban. He had been traced to his sister’s home on the outskirts of the Afghan capital of Kabul. Noor was a member of the British-trained Afghan Commando Force 333 unit, many 333 members had already been evacuated, but it is not clear if Noor applied for relocation. The murder is the latest in a series of revenge killings perpetrated against those Afghans who aided western forces in years past. Colonel Ash Alexander-Cooper, OBE, an SAS commander tweeted about the need to protect those who loyally served Britain and her allies.
