This report (following on similar – and in some cases proven – allegations of “suspicious deaths”/war crimes against Australian, Danish and other special forces) refers to ” three separate British SAS units operating in the country between 2010 and 2013″ and lawyers of victims saying there was “credible evidence of a widespread and systematic pattern of unlawful extrajudicial killings.”

One of the elite soldiers is believed to have “personally killed” 35 Afghans on a single six-month tour of duty as part of an alleged policy to terminate “all fighting-age males” in homes raided, “regardless of the threat they posed”.
