The Taliban killed 22 Afghan soldiers who were trying to surrender last month in an attack that was captured on video and corroborated by witnesses, according to CNN.
CNN reported Tuesday that the Taliban shot and killed 22 members of an Afghan Special Forces Unit on June 16 in the town of Dawlat Abad in Faryab Province, which is near Afghanistan’s border with Turkmenistan.
The Red Cross confirmed to CNN that the bodies of 22 commandos were retrieved.
In one video of the attack, a number of men are seen exiting a building, unarmed, yelling “surrender, commandos, surrender,” according to CNN.
Shots are then fired, followed by at least a dozen people being shot and people crying out “Allahu Akbar,” which translates to “God is Great.”
Witnesses told the network that the commandos’ stock of ammunition was empty, following a battle to hold the town, and they were surrounded by Taliban fighters.
