Afghan conflict: US conducts first air strike on Taliban since deal | BBC

A peace deal between the Taliban and the U.S, as well as other NATO forces, was signed on Saturday following a successful seven-day period of reduced violence. The first airstrike against the terror organization has occurred after 11 days of peace, with the U.S. saying it was in defense of an attack on an Afghan National Security Forces checkpoint. Taliban officials have since called for a de-escalation of violence from both sides, stating they want the peace agreement to last. A spokesperson has commented that it is unclear if there were any casualties, and that the U.S. will defend their Afghan partners.
