The III infantry brigade will return back to Georgia without losses.
A company of Georgian soldiers of the III infantry brigade will replace the hundred Georgian soldiers to join Nato’s Resolute Support mission in northern Afghanistan to provide security and participate in fast-response operations for the next seven months.
The Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan was launched in 2015 and involves about 17,000 personnel from nearly 40 NATO member and partner countries.
Georgia is the largest non-NATO contributor to the Resolute Support mission with 870 soldiers.
