Taliban Claims Its Infiltrators Killed 16 US Soldiers

On January 11, two Taliban members, who had infiltrated the Afghan Army, attacked US soldiers during a meeting in in Spin Ghar district of the eastern province of Nangarhar, according to the Taliban news agency Voice of Jihad. The media outlet claimed that 16 US soldiers were killed and several others were injured in the attack.

The Taliban revealed that its two members who conducted the attack – “Pacha Khan” and “Mindar” – managed to join the Afghan Army previously and were even promoted to commanders. Later the two Taliban members used the trust they had gained to conduct the deadly attack against the US troops who were gathered to hold a meeting with them, according to the Taliban.

The NATO Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan denied that 16 US soldiers were killed in the supposed attack. However, the NATO confirmed that one US soldier was wounded in what it calls an “active ground engagement”.

Captain Tom Gresback, public affairs director for Resolute Support mission, told the Associated Press (AP) that the “active ground engagement” took place in Achin district of Nangarhar province.

“No coalition service members were killed in the engagement. One U.S. service member was wounded and is in stable condition at a medical treatment facility … We are looking into the details of engagement with our Afghan partners and will provide more information when appropriate,” Capt. Gresback said according to AP.

The new attack on the US troops in Afghanistan comes after the leak of a video that shows a US service member firing into the cab of a random civilian truck on a road in Afghanistan. Many observers viewed Achin attack as a reaction for the leaked video.

      Google “one shot two kills” to witness the pure demonic evil of the jews of Israel and those that support them.

    These days I’d believe the Taliban before Western sources.

      Yes at least the Taliban don’t support child sex killers like the USSA slaves of racist supremacist Jews and their Lord Satan do with government USSA Afgan allies even raping torturing and murdering large numbers of children on USSA bases. Even the USA military confesses to these evil crimes now.

      Taliban banned drugs in 2000 down to 8000 ha opium crops in 2001. NATO/US produced last year 9000 ton of heroine in Afghan equal to 300 000 ha opium crops.

      All the West media about Taleban is complete bs.

    look out for a training or transport “accident” involving similar losses in the next couple of weeks

    Long ago the US government moved to hide US casualties in foreign nations with a variety of methods- all with the co-operation of the jewish controlled mainstream media. Dead soldiers are described as ‘wounded’ for instance, with their FAKE deaths happening hours or days later – sometimes after the corpse reaches the USA.

    There is ZERO probability of current US governments confirming 16 dead soldiers- ZERO. Lying about such events is considered the same way as all other psy-ops- for the ‘sake’ of ‘public morale’, of course.

    So the truth will always be fragmented. And often, the US soldiers turn out to be official western mercenaries, confusing things even more (mercenaries frequently wear US army uniforms).

    Trump, the thickie president, is so desirous of special forces ‘spectaculars’ as seen in Hollywood movies, US armed services planners are giving Trump what he wants even when the risks are insane. Anything to keep Trump happy.

    Recall when peanut brained Carter wanted the ‘hostages’ rescued in Iran. How did that operation turn out? When the ‘commander-in-chief’ actually takes control of aspects of the US armed services, disaster always follows.

    But for the fools here who celebrate US losses, no nation on Earth has a greater supply of CANNON FODDER than the USA. One dead US soldier means two more recruited, trained, armed, and transported to mass murder more innocent victims.
