How many Afghan troops are there?

200000 soldiers in Afghan troops

Everyone knows that the Afghan National Army (ANA) is the main branch of the Afghan Armed Forces, responsible for ground warfare.  The Afghan National Army is under the Ministry of Defense in Kabul and is being heavily assisted by the United States and NATO.  Keep in mind that by early 2013, reports stated that there were 200,000 ANA troops.  It is interesting to know that these troops are being trained by the International Security Assistance Force under NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan.  It is important also to mention the increasing number of female soldiers who are also joining the ANA.
