DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:00 P.M.) – According to a statement released by the Taliban moments ago, a jihadist militant killed six US servicemen in a suicide bombing in Nangarhar province.
The bulletin claimed a Taliban suicide bomber blasted a US convoy in the embattled eastern province, setting alight a Humvee and burning alive all soldiers alive inside.
Washington is yet to address the claim.
Meanwhile, ISIS said it had imposed full control over the Chaparhar District in the very same governorate, expelling the Taliban from its former regional headquarters amid jihadist infighting.
With a three-way war raging across several provinces, an ISIS raid also killed 2 soldiers and injured a third earlier this week in the Nangarhar region, bordering Pakistan.
