Attacks on US-led troops are rapidly rising in Afghanistan. But it is mostly Afghan security forces who target them-not the Taliban alone. These attacks are known as Green on Blue.
But they were killed for different reasons. They say they turned their weapons on US-led forces either because of combat stress or disrespect to Islamic values by foreign troops. These attacks have jumped, especially after the burning of the Holy Quran by American forces in Bagram Air Base this year.
Green on blue attacks have greatly affected that relations between Afghan forces and US-led troops too. They do not trust each other very much now. US forces have stepped up security around and inside their bases. Most joint military compounds have also been separated. And both US and Afghan government seem worried about this trend.
