The United States launched an airstrike to control Taliban insurgent advancement over territories in Afghanistan. The airstrike was an effort by the United States to support Afghan security forces against the Taliban faction. 

Taliban faction has seized military equipment from Afghan National Defence and Security forces. The U. S. officials refused to give any information regarding the military assets that were sent to the region.

An official said that the recently launched airstrike was a part of Washington’s over-the-horizon strategy. The United States’ overnight airstrike suggests its intention to support the Afghan government against the territorial expansion by the Taliban insurgents. 

The US military in the past 30 days has carried out strikes using drones to launch the strikes. The military will extend its support to Afghanistan forces until the United States troops are completely withdrawn. 

Afghan’s military is strategizing to combat Taliban expansion over critical areas like the capital Kabul and other major cities. The United States will withdraw its military troops completely from Afghanistan next month. 

The United State president Joe Biden has ordered in April that U. S will be completely withdrawn from Afghanistan ending the 20-year-old war. 

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said, “we have acted through airstrikes to support the Afghan National Defence and Security forces (ANDSF).” He added that the newly appointed head of United States Army Central Command authorized the airstrikes on the Taliban faction. General Kenneth McKenzie assumed General Miller’s responsibility after Miller stepped down. 

Since May 2021 amid the withdrawal of the American-led foreign forces, the Taliban has been trying to gain territorial advancement in the nation. One of the Taliban even claimed that now the Taliban control 90% of Afghanistan’s territory. This Statistical figure however remains unverified and exaggerated.
