US Drone Shot Down In Afghanistan, As The Conflict Heats Up
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (Voice of Jihad) is reporting Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) believed to be operated by the United States. So far, no comments from the US military…
The UAV above is believed to be a MQ-9 Reaper with a price tag of $10.5 million. The aircraft can stay airborne up to 36 hours with 1.7 tons of missiles and bombs.
The location of the downed drone is in Kunduz, a city in northern Afghanistan.
Only yesterday, a US drone strike killed 14 Isis militants in the Kunar province, a northern boarder region in Afghanistan. According to The Guardian, “Abdul Ghani Musamim, a spokesman for the provincial governor, told the Associated Press that the drone had targeted a meeting of Isis commanders who were planning a terrorist attack”..
On Thursday, we reported U.S. bombs dropped in Afghanistan, by month surged to a 7-year high, as it’s clear Trump’s Afghanistan war policy is to drop more bombs.
As explained before, we suspect, President Trump, Warmonger-in-Chief, has just reignited a trend that the military industrial complex is very satisfied about. Nevertheless, expect more headlines from Afghanistan as the conflict heats up.
