B-52 Bomber Drops Record Number of Bombs on Taliban Base

US Unleashes 4 Days Of Intense “Precision” Bombing On Taliban

Hecker said Afghan air forces are now also more capable of carrying out sorties against the Taliban and are conducting more missions than USA forces.

Hecker said the annihilation of these training facilities prevents insurgents from planning terrorist attacks near Afghanistan's border with China and Tajikistan. That's up from a previous record set in November of 19 precision-guided munitions. The Taliban actually is not on the State Department's list of designated terrorist groups, though it often has carried out attacks on US troops and other Americans.

The U.S. Air Force has released footage of a B-52 bomber dropping a large payload onto a Taliban training camp in Afghanistan.

The Pentagon said strikes also targeted stolen Afghan National Army vehicles that were being converted into vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices, or VBIEDs.

The United States has launched a new air campaign against the Taliban in Afghanistan, dropping a record number of precision guided bombs on their targets over the past 24 hours, the USA military announced on Tuesday.

"The CRL is essentially a revolver in the bomb bay that turns and jettisons precision munitions one at a time", Pickart said.

It will be interesting to see how Wade is received back in Miami and what his role will be moving forward. Wade averaged 19 points, 4.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds in his season with Dragic.

The military said that USA strikes and raids by Afghan security forces have resulted in the removal of more than $30 million of Taliban revenue since the campaign began in November, 2017.

Hecker said the "weight and effort" of the USA intelligence community will be shifted to Afghanistan within the next month. US Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft also participated in these day and nighttime missions.

United States Forces-Afghanistan said they have launched a series of precision strikes in Northern Afghanistan as part of ongoing counter-revenue operations aimed at stemming the flow of narcotics and financial support to the Taliban.

The US is preparing an onslaught against insurgents in Afghanistan when the Taliban's fighting season starts in the spring.

According to an NDS statement 'the group was involved in destructive and terrorist activities in Khogyani district.

B-52s in 2017 dropped approximately 1,500 weapons (with about 50 percent unguided) in Afghanistan, AfCent officials said in December.

"The Taliban can not win on the battlefield, therefore they inflict harm and suffering on innocent civilians", Nicholson said. "All they can do is kill innocent people and destroy what other people have built".
