U.S. military probes video of possible shots at civilian truck

   SHOOTING The US soldier appears to fire into the window of an Afghan civilian truck

The original video entitled "Happy Few Ordnance Symphony" was recently uploaded on YouTube by an anonymous user and then quickly removed. The video is set to music and offers no audial cues for the clip.

Gen. Joseph Votel, the commander of Central Command, issued a statement condemning the video.

"I have reviewed the video and I am disappointed and also concerned that the American people, our Coalition partners, the Afghan government, and the Afghan people will believe that American service members are callous and indifferent to the horrors of war or the suffering of innocent people trapped in conflict", said Army Gen. Joseph Votel, the chief of Centcom, in the statement.

In the clip, a military vehicle approaching a truck with a white cab and black cargo cabin trucks.

The video, uploaded anonymously to YouTube under the title "Happy Few Ordnance Symphony" before it was quickly removed, shows what appears to be a US military vehicle passing a small-cab dump truck, commonly referred to as a "jingle truck".

"As the armored vehicle comes alongside the truck, the individual lowers his military-style shotgun and appears to fire into the truck's driver-side window, causing the glass to shatter", the magazine reported.

"We are conducting an investigation into this video, and will take appropriate actions as a result of this investigation".

Politico says the footage may have been shot in Nangarhar province, where USA commandos were involved in fighting in 2017 against militant groups that pledge allegiance to the terrorist group Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).

Elsewhere in the footage, United States troops from forces such as the Green Berets and Marine Raiders are seen firing machine guns and rockets as well as calling in air strikes, also filmed via helmet cam.

U.S. Central Command says the video posted on YouTube triggered serious concerns. According to Politico, the video contained footage allegedly captured by USA troops fighting Daesh's affiliate in Afghanistan. It could mark yet another in a long line of instances in which US troops have photographed or recorded video of themselves or their colleagues misbehaving in war zones, only to face criminal or administrative discipline afterward.
