KABUL -- President Ashraf Ghani has fired seven high-ranking army officers over a deadly attack on the Marshal Fahim military academy in Kabul late last month, according to AFP.

Five terrorists stormed the academy January 29, killing 11 military personnel in an attack claimed by the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS). All five assailants were killed.

An investigation found "that seven high ranking officers including two generals committed professional negligence. All seven are sacked and referred for further investigations", said the president's official Twitter account Tuesday (February 6).

Shahussain Murtazwi, a spokesman for Ghani, confirmed the firings, reported TOLOnews.
