Taliban capture US base in Afghanistan


Share | Email | Print

Taliban militants have claimed that they have driven US troops out of a military outpost in Afghanistan‘s northeastern Kunar Province.

They also said that the Americans fled the military outpost in Kunar’s Marawara district in helicopters on Monday.

A senior Taliban commander said the group is now in full control of the district where the outpost is located.

He added that the militants attacked the outpost with rockets and machine guns.

Taliban say the ensuing clashes forced the US forces stationed there to flee.

The militants say they have seized all weapons and munitions left behind in the outpost.

A Press TV correspondent says the US military has not yet commented on the attack.
