BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – An insurgent rocket landed near a group of civilians in Helmand Province killing five and wounding one Feb. 25. Afghan National Army and Coalition forces witnessed the errant 107 mm rocket and immediately responded to the site in Karez de Baba and treated the wounded, who suffered sharapnel wounds to their lower extremeties. The injured Afghan was medically evacuated to a nearby treatment facility. The insurgent attack followed a successful five-day mission in the Kajaki District area to disrupt insurgent operations. The combined force eliminated several enemy fighters during the operation. The ANA also destroyed an extensive tunnel and cave system, insurgent command positions, weapons and ammunition caches as well as IED-making materials. “This is another example of the insurgent’s blatant disregard for innocent Afghans similar to the suicide bombings in Kandahar and Lash Kah Ghar Central Mosque,” said Army Capt. Vanessa R. Bowman, a Coalition spokesperson.
I read an interesting quote today about how the Talib and AQ Afghanistan should be theirs by the will of god. I guess the think god will forgive them for killing muslims, blowing up roads, blowing up power lines etc. This does nothing but hurt the people they supposedly want to live in the perfect utopia that is islam.
