U.S. air strikes target Taliban fighters advancing on key Afghan city | Reuters

Over the last two days, hundreds of Taliban fighters have been swarming security checkpoints and attacking Afghan security forces in the Helmand province. After they took over several military bases, the United States launched an air strike against the militants in order to help Afghan forces reclaim the area. The fighting between the Taliban and Afghanistan has continued despite peace talks currently taking place in the Qatari capital of Doha. U.S. military spokesman Col. Sonny Leggett commented that the air strike was “consistent with the United States-Taliban agreement” and that the U.S. would continue to help the Afghan forces with defensive cover.
