Afghan Corps Commander announced Commander ANA 4th Brigade to lead 205 Corps

The Aus­tralian Defence Force con­grat­u­lates the Com­man­der of the Afghan Nation­al Army (ANA) 4th Brigade, Brigadier Gen­er­al Abdul Hamid, on his pro­mo­tion and appoint­ment as Com­man­der of the ANA 205 Atal (Hero) Corps.

Aus­tralian sol­diers and civil­ians have worked close­ly with Brigadier Gen­er­al Hamid and the 4th Brigade over a num­ber of years. 

The Chief of Joint Oper­a­tions, Lieu­tenant Gen­er­al Mark Evans, said the pro­mo­tion was well deserved and the ANA’s 205 Corps will ben­e­fit from Brigadier Gen­er­al Hamid’s experience. 

“The Com­man­der leaves the 4th Brigade hav­ing over­seen sig­nif­i­cant progress in its devel­op­ment,” said Lieu­tenant Gen­er­al Evans. 

“The Brigade’s kan­daks are now capa­ble of con­duct­ing a wide range of part­nered and men­tored oper­a­tions and are pro­ceed­ing as planned on a path to inde­pen­dent secu­ri­ty responsibilities.” 

“We wish him every suc­cess with the apt­ly named Hero Corps, which has shoul­dered a large bur­den in pro­vid­ing secu­ri­ty in south­ern Afghanistan,” Lieu­tenant Gen­er­al Evans said. 

The Aus­tralian Defence Force wel­comes Brigadier Gen­er­al Zafar Khan as Gen­er­al Hamid’s replace­ment as Com­man­der of the ANA 4th Brigade. Brigadier Gen­er­al Zafar has a long mil­i­tary his­to­ry and brings a wealth of expe­ri­ence and knowl­edge that will ben­e­fit the 4th Brigade. 

The 205 Corps has brigades in Kan­da­har, Zab­ul, and Uruz­gan provinces.
