Taliban claim killing 6 US-led forces
Jun 29, 2013

The Taliban militants in Afghanistan claim they have killed six US-led foreign forces in an attack in the western province of Farah.

A tank belonging to the US-led forces was reportedly destroyed and another one partially damaged in the attack.

On Friday, Afghan security officials said the attack was carried out as a suicide bomber detonated his explosives next to a US convoy in Kunsak area in the volatile Balablook district.

Security officials confirmed that a tank had been destroyed, but said they had no information regarding the casualties.

Attacks on foreign troops are expected to rise in the next months, as Taliban militants have announced the beginning of their ‘offensive’ across Afghanistan.

The militant group said it would use "every possible tactic" to inflict casualties on Afghan and US-led forces. They specifically mentioned insider and bomb attacks.

The announcement prompted the Afghan authorities to tighten security in major cities across the country, including the capital Kabul.

According to the icasualties website, at least 3,330 foreign soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001, which was conducted as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror.

The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but insecurity continues to rise across Afghanistan, despite the presence of foreign troops.

The increasing number of foreign military casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger in the United States and other NATO member states, undermining public support for the Afghan war.

Afghan workers stage protest against US company
Jul 8, 2013

The demonstration was held on Monday in the Afghan capital city of Kabul.

The manager of the Afghan Mansoor Jalal Logistics and Transportation Company (M.L.C) told reporters that the American firm known as Supreme owes the M.L.C more than USD 20 million.

The US company is tasked with providing logistical support to the foreign forces stationed in war-torn Afghanistan by signing contracts with small Afghan companies.

The protesters warned that if the Afghan government and the foreign forces in the country fail to meet their demands within the next three days, they will stop providing services to all foreign forces in Afghanistan.

The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror.

The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but insecurity continues to rise across the country, despite the presence of thousands of US-led troops.

Taliban down US helicopter in Afghanistan
Jul 12, 2013

Taliban militants claim their fighters have downed a helicopter belonging to the US-led forces in the northern Baghlan Province of Afghanistan.

Local Afghan officials said on Friday the chopper went down in Boorkeh city of Baghlan Province while it was carrying out a military operation overnight.

The Western coalition forces said the military aircraft made a hard landing.

However, the Taliban militant group said in a statement on Friday that all the US-led foreign troops on board the helicopter were killed in the troubled region during the late hours of Thursday.

This time of the year is known as the Taliban spring offensive, during which the militants step up their attacks on foreign and Afghan forces.

Taliban militants have increased violence against US-led forces in Afghanistan, targeting NATO helicopters and drones.

The rising death toll of US-led foreign forces in Afghanistan has also prompted growing opposition to the Afghan war in NATO member states and other countries that have contributed troops to the military occupation.

The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in 2001 as part of so-called war on terror. The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but insecurity remains across the country.

Students stage anti-US rally in western Afghanistan
Jul 20, 2013

Hundreds of angry students have staged a massive rally in the central-western province of Ghour, calling on the Afghan government to cancel a planned security deal with the United States.

Local Afghan security officials say a large number of protestors poured onto streets of the city of Cheghcheran, chanting anti-American slogans and torching American flags and effigies of US President Barack Obama.

Eyewitnesses say things turned violent after the furious demonstrators marched towards the camp of Spanish troops in the area and set fire to a number of tents. At least three protesters were injured in the violent clashes with Afghan security forces.

The demonstrators said a security treaty between Washington and Kabul will pave the way for a prolonged US military presence in Afghanistan.

Washington had promised to withdraw all combat forces from Afghanistan by 2014. However, it has been locked in tricky negotiations with Kabul over a strategic partnership beyond 2014.

In May, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said his government was ready to let the US set up nine bases across Afghanistan after most foreign troops withdraw in 2014.

Many Afghans believe that the US is envisaging permanent military bases there.

Afghan political groups have warned that things will get worse should the US set up permanent military bases in Afghanistan.

Afghan political figures have also heaped scorn on the US-led forces for committing unforgivable crimes against Afghan women and children since invading the country in 2001.

Thousands of Afghan civilians, including a large number of women and children, have been killed during night raids by foreign forces and CIA-run assassination drone strikes.

The increasing number of casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger against the US and other NATO member states.

Three foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan were American: Officials
Jul 23, 2013

Afghan officials say three foreign soldiers who were killed in a blast in the troubled central east region of Afghanistan were American.

The casualties came after a bomber targeted a convoy of Afghan and foreign forces in Wardak Province on Tuesday.

The Western military alliance also confirmed the death toll and the nationality of the dead soldiers.

Local security sources said an Afghan interpreter has also lost his life and several local soldiers were injured during the attack.

Over a decade of the costly US-led war in Afghanistan has failed to end militancy in the country and the US which has thousands of troops on the ground in Afghanistan is now trying to sit down for talks with Taliban militants.

There has been a surge in the number of militants’ assaults against Afghan forces, foreign troops, and civilians in the war-torn country in recent months.

According to the website icasualties.org, over 101 foreign troops, mostly US personnel, have lost their lives in Afghanistan this year alone.

However, 2010 remains the deadliest year for foreign military casualties with a death toll of 711.

US-led troops and Afghan forces are falling prey to Taliban attacks on an almost daily basis.

The increasing number of military casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger in the United States and other NATO member states, undermining public support for the Afghan war.

The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror. The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but insecurity remains across the country.

Instead of spending (read borrowing) billions on having their soldiers slaughterd in Afghanistan, US pervert government would be better bailing out its present and future bankrupt cities instead of depriving and stealing people their pensions.

Taliban bombers attack US base in Afghanistan
2 September 2013

Taliban militants have attacked a US base in eastern Afghanistan, sparking a lengthy gun battle in which three insurgents were killed.

Reports say the attack on Torkham base in Nangarhar province unfolded after militants torched Nato supply trucks on the highway leading to the base.

Officials said that no Afghan or US soldiers died in the raid. The attackers did not enter the base.

But officials say the financial cost of the attack is likely to be immense.

Many Nato supply vehicles on the road to the base were left badly burned on the highway. Officials closed the Jalalabad-Torkham road - a key route for these vehicles - after the attack.

A Taliban spokesman told the BBC that the group was behind the raid.

Isaf said the attack was unsuccessful: "Our initial assessment of this morning's events, which occurred in the vicinity of a forward operating base located in Nangarhar province, is that it was an attempted but unsuccessful co-ordinated attack by enemy forces."

The base is home to some of the 66,000 US troops serving in Afghanistan along with forces from other countries. Officials say the base was also an important stopping point for Nato vehicles.

There has recently been a spate of attacks across the country, claiming dozens of lives - most of them civilians.

The violence is being interpreted by some as an attempt by the Taliban to assert their presence and test the strength of Afghan forces ahead of the planned withdrawal of US-led forces at the end of next year, the BBC's Karen Allen in Kabul reports.

Six rockets hit US Bagram air base in Afghanistan
Sep 11, 2013

Six rockets have hit the United States' Bagram Air Base, the largest military base for US troops in Afghanistan, which is situated near the capital, Kabul, Press TV reports.

The incident reportedly took place in Parwan Province late Tuesday with the Taliban immediately claiming responsibility for the attack.

The US military has also confirmed the attack. However, US officials say the rockets were not effective.

Meanwhile, Afghan military sources say a US-led air strike killed six people in the country’s eastern city of Ghazni, also late Tuesday.

The US-led NATO forces confirmed the raid, claiming those killed were all “militants.”

On September 8, Afghan officials reported that Taliban militants had downed a US chopper in the western Herat Province while it was carrying out a military operation.

The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror.

The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but insecurity continues to rise across the country, despite the presence of thousands of US-led troops.
