6 years ago today three german soldiers died and four got seriously injured during the “Good Friday Battle” in Isa Kehl, Afghanistan.
On GoodFriday, April 2nd 2010, GOLF Platoon’s (Paratrooper BTN 373 SEEDORF ) mission was to sweep streets for IEDs and remove them. Around 1300hrs local time they were ambushed by aprox. 30-40 Taliban fighters. They were attacked with small arms fire and anti-tank weapons. Three soldiers were initially wounded, two seriously. Though under heavy fire US Medevac helicopters were able to evac the wounded to the hospital in KUNDUZ. During the 8 hour long firefight and the start withdrawal, one Vehicle ( Type Dingo) drove onto an IED. Again, four soldiers were seriously injured. As the day drew to an end, three soldiers die due to their injuries. They leave behind parents, spouses, partners, siblings, daughters and sons. Soldiers through and through, they swore to protect their country and payed the ultimate sacrifice.
