Forty-six green-on-blue attacks have occurred since January 1, 2012, resulting in the death of 78 government personnel. This is a tremendous increase from the 21 green-on-blue attacks that were carried out against ISAF soldiers in 2011 resulting in the deaths of 35 soldiers. These violent attacks continue to pose one of the greatest threats against government personnel in Afghanistan.
