Map of Afghanistan


Germany has played a major role in Afghanistan alongside numerous other NATO and Coalition partners since 2001. The country's initial deployment of its German special operations forces saw action in the surronding areas of Kabul while attached to the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force - Afghanistan (CJSOTF-A). In addition, aviation and other specialized units were assigned to the coalition presence in Kabul.

Eventually, with the movement of the international coalition forces beyond Kabul Germany took a leading role in northern Afghanistan - establishing major bases in Mazar-e Sharif (Camp Marmal) and in Kunduz province.

Post-2015. Germany continues to play a leading role in Afghanistan and is instrumental in the "Train, Advise, and Assist" mission for the 209th Afghan National Army (ANA) Corps based in Balkh province.
