The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Afghanistan: British soldiers suffering ‘psychological consequences’ from Kabul evacuation mission” – below is their description.
British soldiers “cannot unsee” the horrors of Kabul and will need help to recover from the “harrowing” deployment, the Brigadier who led the mission has said.
James Martin, Commander of 16 Air Assault Brigade, warned of the importance of his soldiers taking time to process what they had witnessed during the mass evacuation mission in Afghanistan.
As part of Operation Pitting, 600 soldiers from the Brigade’s 2 Para were the first to land in Hamid Karzai International Airport when the rescue mission was launched last month.
Based out of Kabul’s Baron Hotel, the soldiers (on little sleep) extracted the majority of British nationals within the first 24 hours of touching down, before moving onto the dual nationals and those on the ARAP (Afghan Relocation and Assistance Policy) scheme and ensuring that they were brought to safety.
