To be a member of Nato is not only about about the radar. U.S. Military operations against Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters continue, and the Czech Republic redeploys more than 100 elite troops to Afghanistan, according to the Defense Ministry.
The same unit served in Afghanistan in the same mission in 2006, during the ‘Enduring Freedom’ operation. The deployment needs to be approved by the Czech parliament. The Czech Republic currently has more than 300 soldiers in Afghanistan. So far, two Czech soldiers died there.
