KABUL: United States military launched an investigation after a video showing an American Special Operations forces opening fire on a civilian truck went viral on Youtube.
The video shows a service member from a military vehicle taking a shot at a civilian truck passing by. The window glass of the truck can be seen shattered in next frames.
However, it was unclear whether the truck driver was hurt – or why the shot was fired.
The video has caused an uproar on social media as the protocol violation from the US forces continues in the country.
Gen. Joseph L. Votel, head of United States Central Command, said the video, which consists of over 40 individual clips, is “not official, not authorized and does not represent the professionalism of the service members of U.S. Central Command.”
