Australia says the evidence has been found against their soldiers of the killings of 39 innocent people during the Afghanistan war.
Last week, the Australian Defense Force (ADF) released a report after a four-year investigation into the misconduct of Australian soldiers. This time, the ADF has sent notices to 10 special forces to dismiss.
According to the BBC, the Prime Minister of Australia and the top army commander have apologized for the incident.
Afghanistan has called the killings unforgivable. However, the country welcomed the investigation report released last week as a step towards justice.
Two soldiers have already been fired. The Australian media portrayed them as witnesses to the killing of an Afghan national in a field in Afghanistan.
Earlier, the ADF report said that the police must investigate 19 current and former soldiers. They were involved in the killings of prisoners, peasants and civilians between 2009 and 2013.
The BBC reports that the investigation was led by Major General Justice Paul Brereton. He interviewed more than 400 people.
According to the investigation, the superiors used to order the subordinates to shoot the prisoners for the practice of bleeding.
To cover up this crime, weapons and other objects were left beside the corpse. In two separate incidents, torture was considered a war crime.
Australia has about 400 troops in Afghanistan as part of ongoing peacekeeping efforts with the United States and other allies.
