After 13 years of operations fighting terrorism and establishing security as part of the international coalition, French troops have left Afghanistan. Afghan forces are now responsible for the security of their country. From the start of the French involvement in the Afghan conflict, the missions were constantly evolving. The military force was reorganized several times to adapt it to the conflict, right until the final day of operations. In this second and final part of the Journal of Defense Afghanistan Special, we'll take you to Kapisa and Surobi, the areas of responsibility of the La Fayette Task Force. We will then follow the men and women who worked for the gradual withdrawal of French troops while security operations were carried out to enable Afghanistan to regain its independence and the hope that had disappeared.
