British military operation in Afghanistan - Tribute to veterans

Commemorative ceremonies were held to mark the 20th anniversary of the launch of British military operations in Afghanistan.

During the two decades of conflict, two small commemorative events aimed at the Ministry of Defense were held to honor the courage and commitment of the people.

A wreath was laid at the 457 British soldiers killed during the conflict in Afghanistan.

In Afghanistan, the war began on October 7, 20 years ago, with the US-led coalition launching attacks against airports and terrorist training camps.

At the end of last August, British troops withdrew from Afghanistan, ending a 20-year war.

Claire Hill, a mother who lost her only son in this war, said, ‘The wound will never go away. We have to believe that he made a difference. ‘ James died in 2009.
