Taliban Claims Its Fighters Killed Nine U.S. Service Members In Central Afghanistan

On August 4, the Taliban claimed that its fighters killed nine U.S. service members and injured two others in the central province of Parwan. According to the Taliban news agency Voice of Jihad, the service members were killed when Taliban fighters targeted their vehicles with IEDs in the district of Bagram.

The Afghan group’s news agency added that Taliban fighters managed to block the Kabul-Bamyan highway in the district of Syagard after the attacks.

The U.S. Army in Afghanistan has not commented on the Taliban’s claims yet. Usually this means that the claims are false. However, more details may surface in the upcoming hours.

Last month, two U.S. service members, Sergeant First Class Christopher Andrew Celiz and Corporal Joseph Maciel, were killed in Afghanistan. While Celiz lost his life during a military operation, Maciel was killed in what was described as an “insider attack” by a rogue soldier of the Afghan National Army (ANA).

According to the Pentagon, 2,372 U.S. service members have been killed since the beginning of the U.S. intervention in Afghanistan. With no visible end for the crisis in the war-torn country, the number will likely continue to grow.

      Taleban the only group, after the Sovjet-Afghan war, US going home, able to clean up the many milits gangs and organise a school, medical care and justice system plus they banned opium in year 2000.
