The main Canadian military base in Afghanistan came under attack Saturday after insurgents fired rockets and mortars before quickly launching a ground attack. The attack at the Kandahar airfield base occurred at about 8 p.m. local time as militants tried unsuccessfully to breach the northern perimeter. A small number of people were injured and are being treated for their injuries. This is the third major assault on NATO’s military hubs in Afghanistan in six days.
I hope all the troops overseas and at home remain secure, and my prayers are with you. Come home safely.
